Join us to meet, greet, network, and connect with the LGBT Chamber, featuring special guest Chrisie Ballard. Chrisie will talk about Networking Like a Pro. Come on out and learn a couple helpful tips and tricks to make your networking, yes even in this virtual world, more productive and effective! Sponsored by Pima Community College and featuring Member of the Month The Bra Spa.
Beginning in 2021, we are donating proceeds from breakfasts to a non-profit that serves our communities. This month's breakfast benefits the Tucson LGBT Chamber of Commerce Foundation, providing scholarships to LGBTQ+ students at the University of Arizona. Scholarship applications for 2021 open in February!
