Attendees will hear directly from a panel of experts on how to become a preferred vendor, partner or supplier to institutions such as New Jersey's own PSEG, Prudential, Rutgers and Princeton University. In addition to the networking and panel discussion, attendees will also learn how to become a nationally certified LGBT enterprise. Current NJ LGBT Chamber president, Laurie Seliger, observes, "Becoming a certified LGBT business enterprise through the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce is a crucial tool needed to enter supplier diversity programs."
The NJ LGBT Chamber of Commerce "Out For Business" Breakfast event is sponsored by PSEG along with support from NJ LGBT Chamber founding sponsor BCB and additional partnership with Office Depot, Out In Jersey Magazine and Constant Contact. The networking breakfast and panel discussion on September 12, 2018 runs from 8am to 12pm and will be held at the James Ward Mansion at 169 East Broad Street, Westfield, NJ.
