we have been trying to get a Center going in the small state of RI for a while now and it is a major concern of ours to collaborate with like minded groups throughout our tiny state, and most of all, not reinvent the wheel. Centerlink is coming through with help that we would not even know to ask for! We cannot wait to participate in the conference in the Fall and learn how to be more involved members .

When I first became the executive director of the Kalamazoo Gay Lesbian Resource Center, it was CenterLink that came to my aid. CenterLink provided me with valuable resources, connections, support that helped me grow into a stronger and more capable leader. The entire CenterLink team goes above and beyond to keep local LGBT centers connected to one another while helping to build up the leaders of those local centers. CenterLink has strengthened the LGBT movement.

CenterLink provides LGBT community centers across the country with technical assistance in the form of leadership development, fundraising training, strategic planning and feasibility studies. By increasing the capacity of centers, CenterLink is building healthy and vibrant communities. The staff is passionate about the organization's mission and expert in their respective areas of responsibility. I am proud to serve on the Board of Directors and contribute to the impact of this vital organization.

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.

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.

Terry Stone recently facilitated a workshop for our board of the Center OC, in Orange County CA. As a new board member, I felt the curriculum was invaluable. Terry’s relaxed yet knowledgable presentation style put me at ease, and the content educated me on exactly what my role will be. The exercises helped me engage with others and added a sense of transparency to the whole evening.

The resources available through CenterLink have been invaluable to our LGBT center. Professionally, I have benefitted from the network of dedicated and talented leaders from other centers, as well as the presentations at the annual Summit. I just attended my fourth Summit, and came back home charged up!
