The Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce is on the final stretch of its Membership Campaign and consequently compiling the information that will appear in its “2016 Membership Directory & Resource Guide.” This book is the most important LGBT & Allied community resource directory available in South Florida from which to plan, purchase and/or select service providers.
Twenty thousand copies of this book will be printed late this year and distributed monthly to over 130 locations in South Florida as well as mailed to the MDGLCC’s members, elected officials, and CEO's of major corporations. The use of this book, as well as telling the Chamber members that you are conducting business with them as a direct response to their support of the MDGLCC, reinforces their continued investment in the South Florida community of 500,000 loyal LGBT patrons
The estimated LGBT purchasing power in Miami-Dade County is $7 billion. As a means of directing that strength, the MDGLCC devised an easy way to track this support. S.O.M.A. stands for Support Our Members Always. It is from this support that our community thrives and has a voice in the policies that shape our nation, our state, and our local communities.
The MDGLCC reflects the needs and desires of the LGBT and Allied businesses that are OUR members. We ask that you refer to the 2016 S.O.M.A. Membership Directory and Resource Guide frequently when making recommendations to a friend, have a need for a service and/or, looking for that special item for yourself or business.
We are strongest when we act as a community so let this book serve as an inspiration to S.O.M.A.
To our more than 1,100 members (650 plus companies), we appreciate your support. We will continue with our strive to create more opportunities to bring you valuable business. To those who have considered membership in the MDGLCC, now is the time to make that investment!
Do so before Oct. 31 if you want to be included in the “2016 Membership Directory & Resource Guide.”
