Lamda recognizes its responsibility to nurture the success of individual members, thereby contributing to the economic, social and political well-being of the LGBTQ and the community at large. It is the goal of Lambda to maintain an environment of success for individual members through networking, support, and development.
The Las Vegas Lambda Business Association strives to recognize, promote and improve the (LGBTQ) owned or supportive business community whenever possible.
To that end, members should strive to honor the Lambda Business Association Code of Ethics.

For those who already work for or with a Regular Business Member, or who are individuals who do not represent a business or organization. This level of membership provides the opportunity to network with the organization and support the LGBTQ community. For Associate Members who work for a business or organization, a listing under the Business Member will be included in the Lambda website and print directory. Associate members who do not represent a business or organization will receive a separate listing on the website and in the Lambda Directory under Community Builders. Associate Membership includes voting privileges and the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors.
Community Partner Membership
A community group, which may consist of a social, educational, political, spiritual or other type of organization which has the intended purpose of improving the LGBTQ community, may join Lambda by purchasing a Community Partner Membership. Upon joining, one member of the organization will be designated as a representative and will have full voting privileges. Community Memberships may purchase up to three additional Associate Memberships but will have no voting privileges.
Non-Member Category | LGBTQ-specific Community Organizations
LGBTQ-Specific, not-for-profit and community-based organizations or groups: If financially unable to purchase a Community Membership, a fee waiver may be requested from the Board of Directors. If granted, this would entitle the group to a free listing on the Lambda website. Space permitting, Lambda may include such members in the Lambda Smart Pages (print directory). This is limited to LGBTQ-specific organizations or groups. Requests should be addressed via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with "Lambda not-for-profit" in the subject line.
