Chamber Chat: Support Our Members Always

S.O.M.A. means “Support Our Members Always.” As a community chamber (versus a civic chamber), we encourage both our gay and gay-friendly family to support those who support us. One of the benefits of membership in the Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (MDGLCC) is the knowledge that an $8 billion local LGBT market searches our roster of members first when making purchase decisions about goods and services. With a list of over 700 companies comprising our membership, more likely than not you will find what you are looking for.

As corporate America looks to diversify its revenue stream, the LGBT market is increasing looked to for growth. The best way we can make the greatest impact is to speak with our pocketbooks and use Chamber Members whenever possible. The S.O.M.A. Membership Directory & Resource Guide is “Where to Shop, Stay and Play in South Florida!” You can obtain a copy at the MDGLCC’s office and LGBT Visitor Center located at 1130 Washington Avenue in Miami Beach as well as in many high LGBT traffic locations in Miami-Dade & Broward. This amazing guide is provided with the generous support of Bacardi.

And speaking of Bacardi, their Grey Goose Vodka brand will be featured at our next “Spotlight Mega-Mixer” Networking & Business EXPO on Thursday, Nov. 12 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the beautiful Sofitel Miami.  The event is sponsored by Royal Caribbean. This is an opportunity mingle and network with over 150 Chamber members, guests and the community at large as well as leveraging of the "Business Cards Bulletin Board" and Chamber Ambassadors who will be present to answer inquiries and make introductions and connections. At this event there will be a free drawing for great prizes courtesy of various chamber members.  Spinning by DJ / Producer Maximum 3000.  Photography by Juan Saco Mironoff of Miami-Gay-Blog.com.
