NGLCC family, Today our thoughts are with our local affiliate chambers, LGBTBEs, corporate partners, and friends whose communities have been ravaged by the ongoing wildfires across northern California. In addition to the 24 reported deaths and countless missing person reports, many in Sonoma, Napa, and Solano counties have lost their homes, businesses, and livelihoods. The communities impacted by the wildfires have faced tremendous loss, and we hope for the continued safety of those still in the area.
