The North Texas GLBT Chamber of Commerce has recruited American Airlines as its first Platinum Corporate Member.
“We are very pleased to have such a dynamic company return as a corporate member of the chamber and become our first corporate member at the Platinum level,” said Sherry Briggs, president of the group. “American Airlines membership is essential to the chamber’s mission to empower, promote and support the economic development of the North Texas GLBT community and its supporters.”
American Airlines has been named the official airline of the North Texas GLBT Chamber of Commerce, and it will be the presenting sponsor of the chamber’s second anniversary dinner on March 12.
Betty Young, American Airlines’ national sales and marketing manager for the GLBT community, said the corporation is the official airline for many gay organizations, but the association with the Dallas group marks a special honor because it involves the airline’s hometown.
