2021 proved our resolve and resiliency as a community — from the high moments of a vaccine and how CDC protocols allowed us to open back up our worlds, to the lows of new COVID-19 variants.
As a Chamber, we stood together successfully fighting back 76 anti- LGBT bills in the Texas Legislative session, and worked to have certified LGBT-owned businesses recognized by the City of Austin for procurement opportunities. We held our second annual Pride in Local Music event celebrating and amplifying the LGBT creative economy in both Austin and Nashville, and produced our largest ever Business of Pride Gala. The highlight of the gala was awarding awarded five scholarships to Central Texas students via our new Educational Fund.
Our Chamber’s staff have been with our members every step of the way, guiding and providing resources and serving as a sounding board. Our resolve has led to the Chamber’s growth, membership retention, reach and reputation. If you or your business would like information about joining the Chamber, please contact us.
