Networking

Would you like to meet colleagues, community members, and potential clients & customers? We have so many ways for you to get involved. Whether you prefer one-on-one conversations, informal gatherings, hosting parties, formal presentations, or group outings, we’ve got an event for you!  

Chamber Events

Tucson GLBT Chamber of Commerce members can join the Chamber’s Coffee Club. It’s a one-on-one monthly networking opportunity. On your own schedule. Perfect for the introverted and the busy!

You will be matched each month with another member of the Coffee Club. The two of you will arrange to meet for a casual cup of coffee (or tea or lunch or cocktail, as you prefer). 

Chamber members can opt in to the Coffee Club on the Chamber’s website.

Every third Thursday of the month (except December), the Chamber’s members and guests gather from 7:30 to 9:00 AM to share food, company, information, and more!

In June, we of course host a Pride Breakfast, with a celebration of our community. In August, we typically host an Arts & Entertainment breakfast, where member arts organizations share updates on their fall seasons–and raffle off tickets and other goodies! Speakers in the rest of the year cover a wide range of topics of interest to business and LGBT communities–from the mayor to employment law specialists to marketing experts to advocates for inclusive and diverse workplaces. 

Each breakfast features a Sponsor and a Member of the Month. Scroll down for details on how to get involved as a Sponsor or Member of the Month.

On the first Thursday of every month (except December), a member business hosts an evening mixer from 5:30 – 7:30. It’s a great opportunity for members and guests to mix and mingle in an informal setting. To share a beverage and some snacks and to get to know one another and each other’s businesses. 

See below to find out how to host an Out & About!

The Chamber walks in the Pride Parade and hosts a tent at Tucson Pride, and member businesses are welcome to join us! It’s a great opportunity to reach out to the community. Check our Chamber Events for registration beginning in August.

The Chamber hosts an annual Holiday Party in early December. It’s great fun and a great opportunity to get to know more of the members! You can also sponsor the Holiday Party to have your logo included on print and electronic invitations. Check our Chamber Events for registration beginning in October.

On a quarterly basis, the Chamber hosts a special event in conjunction with member businesses. These events vary widely! You can see what is currently scheduled on our quarterly events listing. You are also welcome to suggest an event that you would like to facilitate.

On the first Thursday of the month, Chamber members host an evening mixer. The host business or businesses invite Chamber members to their place of business and provide drinks, snacks, and whatever other entertainment, raffle, or other give-aways will help promote their business to the guests.

The Chamber helps to promote the Out & About Mixer, and the host business(es) are featured in our monthly newsletter, in at least one other mailing, and on our website. It’s a great opportunity to get to know–and be known by–other members of the Chamber and of our community.

If you are interested in hosting a Mixer, fill out the form below the videos. Hosting slots do tend to fill up quickly, so plan ahead!

  • Featured on our website
  • Three minutes to address the breakfast attendees
