Mission and History

The Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Nevada (GLCCNV) advances the prosperity, equality and inclusivity of Nevada’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and allied business community through referrals, education, networking, advocacy and supplier diversity opportunities.

 GLCCNV was established in 2013 as the local affiliate of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) and proudly served as the host chamber for NGLCC’s 2014 National Business & Leadership Conference.

NGLCC was founded in November 2002 with a goal to support LGBT business owners and showcase the diversity of talent in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities. NGLCC has succeeded in large part due to an amazing team and board combined with the caliber of businesses, corporate partners, and individuals that have become involved over the years. In early 2004, NGLCC created a best-in-class diversity certification program, making the organization the exclusive national third-party certifying body for LGBT-owned businesses.
