The Chamber is an affiliate of the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) and was awarded Chamber of the Year in 2012. It has been ranked in the top 20 of Washington Business Journal’s List of Chambers of Commerce for multiple years.

Originally founded as the Potomac Executive Network (PEN), we started out when being associated with an organization that had “gay” in its name would end a career or business. Eventually rebranding to the Capital Area Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, our members were proud to “come out” as an organization.

With the continued advancement of the LGBTQ rights movement, however, “gay and lesbian” no longer reflects where we should be as a community nor where the Chamber is as an organization. We could not think of a better time than this special Pride to announce that we are changing our brand to reflect both the progress we’ve made in being a more inclusive Chamber and where we want to continue to grow.

Mission

The Equality Chamber of Commerce DC Metro Area's mission is to advocate, empower, promote and facilitate the success of LGBT businesses and their allies in the Metro DC region.

Vision

The diverse LGBT business community is acknowledged and well recognized as a key driver in a thriving Metro DC economy. This is happening because of the Chamber’s work to build the common economic interests and synergies between LGBT business owners, LGBT professionals and organizations intent on doing business with the LGBT suppliers and professionals. Business acceptance and business equality for the LGBT community is resulting in economic prosperity for all people in the DC Metro region.
