The North Texas GLBT Chamber of Commerce just celebrated their 12th annual Celebration of Excellence Dinner, and boy what an experience.

It was a night to remember at Renaissance Dallas as the Chamber recognized community leaders with the esteemed Business Excellence Awards. Among them (and we couldn’t be more honored) was J. Waylon & Associates, receiving the 2016 Member Service award for their commitment to diversity and dedication to increasing membership with the Chamber.

Chamber member Zoomhum created a highlight reel of the evening’s festivities.
