    Three Rivers Business Alliance (3RBA) is proud to be an official affiliate of the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce  (NGLCC), the business voice of the LGBT community. Among the many benefits of joining our chamber locally is access to NGLCC’s exclusive certification for LGBT Business Enterprises® (LGBTBE®). 

    Become a member of 3RBA today to not only leverage local membership benefits but also to take advantage of complementary national certification. NGLCC waives the $400 certification fee for businesses that choose to join their local affiliate chamber.

    NGLCC Certified LGBTBEs are able to build relationships with America's leading corporations, generate prospective business and clients, and collectively team with each other for contracting opportunities. As corporate America becomes more inclusive and further diversifies its supply chain, certification offers the opportunity for LGBT-owned businesses to differentiate themselves from their competitors. 

    Certified LGBTBEs are routinely sought after by NGLCC Corporate Partners who are looking to increase their spend with the LGBT business community through our internal, proprietary database. In turn, LGBTBEs have access to over 250 contacts with corporate representatives and supplier diversity professionals to begin building strategic relationships and making preparations to meet face-to-face with them at NGLCC matchmaking and networking events, which are held across the country throughout the year. Certified LGBTBEs are also eligible for scholarship programs, mentorship and leadership training, and other business development tools following one year.

    Learn more and begin the process today online at  For questions, contact us.
