GA Voice: MAAP celebrates 26 years
MAAP celebrates 26 years
LGBTQ networking group Metro Atlanta Association of Professionals (MAAP) celebrated its 26th anniversary in late March. MAAP creates an inclusive environment for the Metro Atlanta LGBTQ community through networking, events, training, mentoring and education.
“Twenty-six years ago, the business world for the LGBT community was far different than what it is today,” MAAP President and CEO Joshua D. Lorenz said in a statement to Georgia Voice. “While our community has certainly changed dramatically in 26 years, networking is still just as vital. Just as when MAAP (then AEN) was founded, we continue to believe that building a network of professionals that focuses on the unique gifts of the members rather than sexual orientation empowers the organization and Atlanta’s LGBT community as a whole.”
The group hosts its next networking event on April 13 at TEN Atlanta.
