But rest assured, our work is far from over; we're just embarking on an incredible path of growth and impact focused on LGBTQ+ economic inclusion." - Tammi Wallace, Co-Founder, President & CEO, Greater Houston LGBT Chamber of Commerce

What is the Rising Star Affiliate Chamber Award? The Rising Star Affiliate Chamber Award is given to a newer Affiliate Chamber, or a Chamber experiencing new growth and vitality. The Rising Star Chamber has exhibited vitality and relevance in its community, brought a unified voice to the LGBT business community it serves, and proven its commitment to being part of the broader national movement.

This chamber recognizes the importance of solid planning and goal setting, has a plan for maintaining its pattern of growth and stability, and serves as an inspiration to its fellow chambers. The Rising Star Chamber will have actively participated in NGLCC grant and program opportunities and believes in the spirit of partnership and actively works to strengthen relationships with NGLCC and its fellow affiliates.

In addition to this milestone, the Chamber recently celebrated another milestone of hitting 400 members for the first time in the organization’s history! If you are not a member of the Chamber, now is a great time to
