by Felecia Powers
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) and Wells Fargo & Company are now accepting nominees for the third annual NGLCC/Wells Fargo LGBT Business Owner of the Year Award, recognizing a small business owner for his/her entrepreneurial spirit and personal service to the community. In addition to a cash grant of $5,000, the recipient will be recognized at the 2007 NGLCC National Dinner, An Evening of Courage, Nov. 2 at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.

“We are proud to again join with Wells Fargo and Company to recognize excellence in LGBT business,” said Justin G. Nelson, NGLCC co-founder and president.

NGLCC and Wells Fargo support the accomplishments of LGBT small businesses and are proud to join forces in presenting the NGLCC/Wells Fargo LGBT Small Business Award. The award recognizes one outstanding LGBT business owner for their business performance, innovation, growth, and personal service to the community.

Winner of the 2006 award, Bob Witeck of Witeck-Combs Communications (Washington, D.C.) said, “Like many small business owners, we aim to build a reputation respected by all. Earning the NGLCC/Wells Fargo honors last year truly was a magical experience and we value the recognition from two of the most respected organizations we know.”

NGLCC is the only national not-for-profit advocacy organization specifically dedicated to expanding the economic opportunities and advancements of the LGBT business community. The premier advocate for LGBT business owners and their families, the NGLCC seeks to expand this community’s financial opportunities, economic growth, continued innovation and equality. As one of NGLCC’s founding corporate sponsors, Wells Fargo is committed to serving the needs of the rapidly growing community of LGBT businesses.
