About the Greater San Diego Business Association
In 2006 the Greater San Diego Business Association (GSDBA) was named “Chamber of the Year” by the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC). The award recognizes GSDBA’s stature as a leader in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender business movement in the United States. Founded in 1979 GSDBA continues to support small businesses in San Diego while advocating for mainstream acceptance of diversity.
Eight hundred members strong, GSDBA is one of the largest specialty chambers in San Diego County and the second largest gay, lesbian and supportive chamber in the nation. GSDBA prides itself on outreach to other business chambers and to society at large. In 2000 GSDBA was the first LGBT chamber in the nation to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the US Small Business Administration, recognizing GSDBA’s status as a minority business association. GSDBA is also a supporting member of the San Diego Hispanic Chamber’s Diverse Emerging Vendor Outreach Program (DEVO).
A founding member of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), GSDBA takes an active roll in national level programs to meet the needs of small businesses. All GSDBA members are automatically members of NGLCC, having access to financial, procurement and advocacy programs. Every business listed in this Directory is not only featured on the GSDBA web site, but also on the NGLCC web site.
In 2005 GSDBA stepped up to fill the need for a San Diego tour guide targeting the gay and lesbian traveler. With the publication of the San Diego Navigaytor, GSDBA puts San Diego on the map as a gay-friendly travel destination.
Diversity is the ground of creativity and strengthens us as an association. Membership in GSDBA is a powerful choice.
Join us in contributing to the growth and prosperity of the San Diego region. We encourage and welcome membership from anyone who supports equality for all people and seeks the opportunities GSDBA can provide in business support, networking, advertising, professional growth and business resources.
