Business & Sponsorship Opportunities
As a community organization, AGLA fosters professional and business growth. There are several ways you can get involved:
Professional Partners Program
First, join AGLA’s new Professional Partners Program to be listed in our online professional services directory.
Second, sponsor one of AGLA’s signature events, such as the Scholarship Reception or annual anniversary Gala. See a list of past sponsors here.
Third, attend a professional networking event. Each month many members attend a First Friday professional networking social at Pinzimini Lounge in Ballston hosted by NoVA Gay & Lesbian Professionals. It’s a casual Friday setting where you can exchange business cards and make professional contacts. More…
Equality Means Business
Fourth, participate in the Equality Means Business Program sponsored by Equality Virginia. This involves signing a pledge that your business is open to all potential customers and clients and will not turn away service to anyone based upon their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity and that your business will never deny or restrict employment to anyone based upon their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. Signing that pledge is simple, free of charge, and can be done quickly using this online form. Your business will then appear in the Equality Means Business Online Directory.
Finally, you can host a special promotional event or reception. AGLA enjoys having events and is always on the lookout for exciting venues for socials, such as new restaurants, wine and cheese receptions art galleries, or boutique shops that want to build stronger ties to the community.
