Sam McClure, Director of Affiliate Relations for the NGLCC, said, "Many of us on staff at the NGLCC remember when CABO was an "idea" and now we are seeing what happens when an "idea" collides with an innovative, passionate and mission-driven group of business leaders. The board of directors, staff and entire membership of CABO should be very proud of all that they have achieved in such a short time. This is an exceptional organization and we are proud to be their national partner."
The National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce characterizes their Chamber of the Year "as the shining example of what an LGBT chamber or business organization should be. It is an established and stable chamber that has weathered the ups and downs, continued to see growth, remained relevant in the community, and is engaged locally and nationally in policy, supplier diversity, certification, and the LGBT business movement. The winner is seen as a role model to other chambers and is a success story that others wish to replicate."
