National Chapter Program

 

NOW OPEN: 50+ Chapters in 30+ States

Delegates in more than 30 states launched more than 50 chapters in 2020. Our initial plan began with the introduction of Alliance chapters in Austin, Atlanta, Orlando, Baltimore, Minneapolis, and Los Angeles in early Q4 2020.  Due to their success, and demand, the program has quickly grown and on Valentine’s Day 2021 we opened membership and our Chapter Program to our friends in Canada! 

We look forward to European expansion in 2022.

The mission of the Alliance Chapter Program is to provide local gathering points for LGBTQ+ and allied real estate and housing industry practitioners. We want to enrich members’ lives through education and networking opportunities that cultivate and grow their businesses and enhance their professional lives.  We also aim to deliver rich advocacy and philanthropic platforms.

Our quest is to build the scope and influence of chapters at the local level through partnerships with local nonprofits and through programming that integrates LGBTQ+ groups like NGLCC, PFLAG, NFHA, and state and local real estate associations. We seek to increase the awareness and understanding of issues and challenges that confront LGBTQ+ customers.
