What is LGBTBE Certification and why should I certify my business? How do I prepare for certification?
The National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) is the official certifying body for this certification. The $400 certification fee is waived for GSBA members.

The National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) offers certification to LGBT business enterprises (LGBTBEs), as well as a host of opportunities to enhance your visibility to corporations seeking to do business with LGBT suppliers. Corporations can search for certified LGBTBEs through its exclusive LGBT supplier database, as well as meet face-to-face with potential suppliers at NGLCC matchmaking events, which are held across the country throughout the year. Certified LGBTBEs may also be eligible for scholarship programs, mentorship, and leadership training, and other business development tools to help you grow.
