Up in the Ascend Lounge of Tavern on Camac, over 80 IBA members, business owners and Community & Corporate Partners enjoyed an evening of great networking and champagne to toast and celebrate the recent awarding of the 2014 Chamber of the Year Award to the IBA! Thank you to the WiBs and ConnX (the IBA’s 2 monthly networking series) who helped make this event possible! A very special thank you goes also to founding and charter members Stephen Carlino and Dennis Fee for hosting us and providing such excellent food and atmosphere! The event was a huge success particularly because of the great folks, members and business owners who came out to celebrate and to network on this very special occasion.
If you haven’t been to an IBA event, come out and join us and find out why so many LGBT professionals and allies use the IBA to make those vital connections in order to sustain and grow their business.
IBA is proud to present our new employee, Paul LeGendre, who will be acting as the Administrative Assistant Executive Administrator, Tom Cavanaugh. Paul has been chosen for his history of working with non-profit organizations back in Seattle, Washington, and has come to the East Coast for study. Paul is currently studying for his Master of the Sciences in Community and Trauma Counseling with Philadelphia University. He also volunteers as a head librarian for the William Way Community Center.
We are thrilled to have Paull become part of the IBA family! His presence and assistance in the IBA office will better enable us to promote our members, their businesses and their products and services.
