The GFLGLCC - Greater Fort Lauderdale Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce is Moving to Wilton Manors, Florida
Date: January 10, 2018
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Expansion Plans Include a Visitor Center and Member Office Space
(Wilton Manors, Florida) – January 10, 2018– Six years after they moved into office space located at 4044 NE 7th Avenue in Oakland Park, Florida, the chamber is excited to announce its expansion and move to Wilton Manors, Florida.
The 1,200sf space at 2300 NE 7th Avenue in Wilton Manors was previously occupied by J Miles and most recently, Al & Chuck Travel. It is located behind Sun Serve and next to The Shoppes of Wilton Manors. The move will take place later this month.
"We are thrilled to be able to transition into office space that will bring real value to our business community," says Keith Blackburn, GFLGLCC President and CEO. The new space will house the chambers offices, conference and meeting space where members can meet clients and more.
"Through an open floor design, we will provide our members with space to collaborate, connect and grow their business. By using the modern work environment we will reduce the footprint required for staff work and provide work, meeting and conference space for member programming and services."
Opening later this year, plans are underway for an LGBT focused Visitor Center, which will assist tourists and spur business in the community. Once open, the center will operate in front of the office space.
