CEO Brief

Happy Pride Festival! This is a big weekend in Nashville with Nashville Pride taking place Saturday and Sunday. We want to thank the Nashville Pride Board and volunteers for their hard work and dedication to put on an important event in these trying times. They have been dedicated to holding a safe and responsible Pride Festival as COVID continues to be a factor. Please read the email below for important safety information if you are going to the festival.

 

The Chamber will be at the festival, look for our booth and register to win a night stay at our member the Virgin Hotel! We will be giving away 5 individual night stays to those that stop by and enter to win. We will also have an awesome Nashville skyline backdrop with Pride colors that you can share. We will also be highlighting our members at the festival on social. If you can’t be there in person you can follow the action online. 

 

We need your help! We are still looking for volunteers to work the booth and tell others about the Chamber and what we do. You know who is best to do that? You! Our members!! Come tell others why you are a member and the benefits you get as one. You can sign up on this form. We could really use the help and would really appreciate it. 

 

We had a great event last night to kick off Pride Weekend. We held our BUB at Love & Exile Winery and Pride spoke to the crowd about the festival. See more details about the event below. I was not able to be there and I won't be at Pride this weekend. I am back in Idaho for my grandmother's funeral. I want to thank Lauren for holding everything together and pulling everything off, with the help of our awesome board members and volunteers. I so appreciate you and your work for the Chamber. Have a Happy Pride and stay safe.
