What we're about

The New Jersey LGBT Chamber of Commerce is New Jersey's premier organization for the promotion of LGBT owned businesses, LGBT business enterprise certification opportunities (LGBTBE), and the advancement of LGBT business professionals.

We are proud to serve as the New Jersey affiliate chapter of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) based in Washington, DC. You should attend our networking events, workshops and panel discussions to grow your business, widen your knowledge base and expand your social circle, within the community and beyond. Experience the power of membership. Become a chamber member today and apply for LGBT business certification.

The NGLCC is the exclusive, third-party certification body that verifies that eligible businesses are majority-owned by LGBT individuals, and subsequently grants LGBT Business Enterprise® (LGBTBE®) designation to such businesses as part of its LGBT Supplier Diversity Initiative. By becoming a certified LGBTBE, businesses are able to build relationships with America's leading corporations, generate prospective business and clients, and collectively team with each other for contracting opportunities. As corporate America becomes more inclusive and further diversifies its supply chain, certification offers the opportunity for LGBT-owned businesses to differentiate themselves from their competitors.
