Reviews for CenterLink: The Community of LGBT Centers
The premier association for lgbt centers. The team goes above and beyond to help support local lgbt centers nationwide. Also, as a board member, this is one of the strongest, cohesive and dedicated group of boardmembers I have seen in a long time. Strong board = strong organization. Thanks CENTERLINK!
I am a huge fan and love CenterLink because I can have an impact on many LGBT community centers across the US. They provide important resources and support for so many lgbt community centers...which in turn builds and strengthens the lgbt movement as a whole.

Centerlink is a valuable resource to all of the LGBT Centers that exist. Individually we would all be on our own without any avenue to easily communicate and share best practices with each other. Having been in the corporate world for 20+ years I look at Centerlink to fill that role for me. Their staff are very knowledgeable and provide much needed support to existing and newer Centers and staff. I am proud to have been associated with this organization over the past 8 years and recently join their Board of Directors.
Centerlink is the conduit bringing all of the LGBT Centers together. Without Centerlink we would be operating as individual businesses all on our own. Now we can easily network and obtain best practices from all across the country and internationally. They are our "go to" resource and provide a valuable service to the LGBT communities that we service.

If I could give them 6 stars I would! The staff is incredible. The services and support they provide to LGBT organizations is instrumental in assisting leadership to best serve their respective communities. I couldn't do it without them.
Our facilitator, Terry Stone, was exemplary and his delivery of approaching what our organization brought him in to complete for us. I am the chairman of the board for NGPA.
A little over two years ago, I became the Executive Director of a small LGBTQ youth non-profit. I had very little experience specific to running the center. Centerlink was a life saver! The staff have always been there to give me the most professional and high quality support and advice; all with a smile and a great sense of humor.
Dining Out For Life International Association worked with CenterLink for its two-day strategic planning meeting. Thanks to CenterLink, the Association was able to refine and define its mission statement, evaluate its capacity to serve, and establish a solid three-year strategic plan.
Working with the team from CenterLink was outstanding, from start to finish. The CenterLink team was efficient, professional, and personable in each and every communication, and each team member went out of her or his way to answer questions, address concerns, and provide effective guidance.
The strategic planning session itself, led by Terry Stone, was thoroughly enjoyable - not something that is often said of such planning meetings! Mr. Stone kept the group on task and on target, allowing just enough conversational meandering while keeping those in attendance focused on the task at hand. He actively and effectively engaged each member of the group throughout the process - both before, during, and after the meeting.
A truly outstanding experience, and one that has made an immediate impact on our organization!
Terry Stone, the Executive Director, has provided me with mentorship, which has involved deep conversations about my future, my skills, and what I need to succeed as an LGBT leader. In general, I know that CenterLink is well-regarded by its member organizations, and helped install the fabulous interim Executive Director of my own local LGBT center (in Brooklyn). CenterLink is fabulous.
Terry Stone, Executive Director of Centerlink, was recommended to us as an expert in LGBT centers. We tapped into Terry's knowledge by inviting him to lead two days of strategic planning with our executive board. With his guidance, we were able to generate a plan to transform our organization. Since that planning meeting, Terry and Centerlink have continue to be a resource to us, helping us in crafting a new job role for our organization, advertising for the position, and reaching out to high potential candidates. Centerlink and Terry Stone enabled us to more quickly achieve our outcomes through the provision of expertise and support.
Centerlink has provided us with vital advice on our strategic plan and Executive Director search. And their services are reasonably priced. I would recommend them to organizations that need advice and guidance for strategic planning and human resource management.
CenterLink has provided critical thought leadership to my organization and its board. Their collective expertise has made them invaluable to our organization and continued success.
