Below is the joint statement sent this morning:
After many years of service our Executive Director, Marquita Thomas, who has served LAGLCC through many seasons of our community’s progress, has decided to leave the Chamber to pursue other endeavors. We want to thank Marquita for her service to LAGLCC during a dynamic time in the history of our community, and against a very challenging political climate. We wish her all the best with her future endeavors.
Moving forward the Chamber will have an Interim Director that will be appointed at some time in near future. In the meantime, we are commencing a search for a permanent Executive Director and expect to engage the services of a nationally recognized executive search firm that specializes in non-profits to help us identify candidates for the position as expeditiously as possible. Various duties have been delegated throughout the Chamber to ensure that the Chamber’s operations will not be affected in any way.
Your Board of Directors are committed to the mission of LAGLCC and look forward to the great things that we as a community will accomplish in the years ahead together.
The Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (LAGLCC) is a 501(c)(6) organization of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and gay-allied businesses, professionals, and individuals, who have joined together to effect positive growth in ourselves, our work, our community and our future.
Los Angeles LGBTQ Chamber of Commerce (LAGLCC) provides visibility, advocacy, and business development for the LGBTQ and allied business community.
The LAGLCC promotes business networking among our members and within our community at large. This network fosters a sharing of information, ideas, contacts and product and services, and so strengthens and expands our businesses, careers and our community.
In a city characterized by congested freeways and increasing “disconnect,” LAGLCC members are committed to supporting one another and building trusting relationships. With educational workshops, evening mixers, networking luncheons, joint activities with other organizations, and community involvement, the LAGLCC strives to connect members of our community and unite them for success both personally and professionally.
