CABO wishes everyone a happy and prosperous New Year. We have many great things going on throughout 2011 and encourage you to check us out when you can. During this year CABO is holding 4 regular monthly events and hope you join us at the one closest to you. We have morning breakfast networking events in New Haven, West Hartford and Westport and a rotating evening networking event in New Haven County. For more details on CABO events in your area, visit www.TheCABO.org.
CABO has also created many great partnerships and initiatives within the CT community and with our members statewide. The first partnership of the New Year I’d like to take a moment to talk about is the True Colors Conference taking place at UConn on March 11th and 12th.
True Colors is a CT based non-profit that works to create a positive environment for LGBT youth; they are a great partner of CABO’s and at this years 18th annual conference we are proud to announce our involvement as a Rainbow Sponsor. This year’s conference theme is about belonging, a very timely topic when reflecting back on the tragic events that took place in 2010 involving LGBT youth across the country. If you are interested in finding out more about True Colors and its role in the LGBT community, visit www.ourtruecolors.org or call (860) 232-0050.
We are always looking for ways we can improve and maximize our relationships with members, partners, supporters and friends. If you have a suggestion for what we can include in this column each month, don’t hesitate to let us know. The better we can serve our audience the better we can serve the community.
CABO’s corporate partnerships include; Aetna, Foxwoods, Murtha Cullina LLP, Comcast Business Class, Clear Channel Radio and The Rainbow Times. Each of these businesses has something great to offer and their commitment and support to the LGBT community is what separates them from the rest. We highly encourage you to do business with one or all of them. As a CABO member there are many great exclusive offers to take advantage of.
