American Meetings, Inc.'s leaders, Todd Bludworth & Andy McNeill, recently sat with Team NGLCC to discuss their success and what led them to be the first LGBTBE Presenting Sponsor of the NGLCC International Business & Leadership Conference: What impact has certification had on AMI’s business? The certification focused AMI on developing a long term diversity and procurement strategy. This strategy is important as many contracts in our business are contracted through procurement. It also expanded our Tier 2 Strategy around downstream vendors increasing their opportunity.

A year ago this week the NGLCC community was heartbroken by a senseless attack on our community at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. We mourned, and still mourn, for those taken and offer love and support to the survivors and their families still in need of healing. Our national chamber network continues to stand firmly in support of our local affiliate chamber, MBA Orlando, as they continue to work with other Central Florida based LGBT organizations to keep our community safe and connected.
