Since joining the board of the Golden Gate Business Association (GGBA) three years ago, I have never been more excited about the direction and leadership of the chamber. As I am now reaching the end of my term on the board and looking forward to what’s next for me, I wanted to share my thoughts and perspectives on what the GGBA means to me, what it means for our community and how you can contribute to the future success of this great organization.
I have been so proud to have served with my fellow board members, volunteers and corporate sponsors. Without their dedication, commitment and service, the GGBA simply would not exist. Every individual with whom I have had the privilege to work has contributed in their own unique way and given their time, money, love, passion and intellect to serve the membership and our corporate sponsors.
As the chamber enters its 45th year of service to the LGBTQ community, the baton of leadership is once again being passed to a new team of leaders, with our first trans woman president-elect, Gina Grahame. This milestone represents a new era of transition, transformation and energy for the GGBA. Our current president, Audry deLucia, and her leadership team including Dr. Krystal Drwencke, Aaron Landers, Jay Greene, Lara Brecher and Tony Archuleta-Perkins, have done an amazing job this year laying the foundation for growth and change.
