New LGBTQ+ Conference for Wedding Officiants & Industry Pros!

Published Tuesday, Nov. 23rd, 2021


The first annual NGWA Inclusive Awareness Conference invites LGBTQ+ wedding pros and like-minded experts to meet, mingle, learn, advocate, and inspire. 

 

 

The National Gay Wedding Association will kick off 2022 with a brand new virtual conference for LGBTQ+ wedding professionals and like-minded industry experts. 

 

Called “Share-the-Love," the NGWA’s inaugural Inclusive Awareness Conference seeks to educate and inspire wedding professionals working with LGBTQ+ couples, and to cultivate a more welcoming wedding industry. 

 

We love to see it! 

 

Wedding officiants, planners, and other experts are invited to tune in virtually to connect, network, and learn new skills and strategies for success from a “multifaceted and dynamic group” of speakers and advocates.

 

According to the event website, attendees will learn best practices, how to advocate for LGBTQ+ couples, and how to create a practical business plan for a more inclusive wedding business.

 

Speakers will include Chasten Glezman Buttigieg, Brian Green, and Sara Cunningham, along with a few surprise guests. 

 

This online event is scheduled for January 5, 2022, and will be streamed from location in Palm Springs, California.

This event looks absolutely amazing, but tickets aren’t cheap ($195.00 for members and $395.00 for nonmembers). So it won’t be in the budget for every wedding officiant who wants to attend, unfortunately.
