Table Captain FAQs

How do I learn more about the National LGBTQ Task Force?

The National LGBTQ Task Force the oldest national organization dedicated to advancing freedom, justice and equality for LGBTQ people.

We’re building a future where everyone is free to be themselves in every aspect of their lives. Today, despite all the progress we’ve made to end discrimination, millions of LGBTQ people face barriers in every aspect of their lives: in housing, employment, healthcare, retirement, and basic human rights. These barriers must go. That’s why the Task Force is training and mobilizing millions of activists across our nation to deliver a world where you can be you.

How do my guests decide to sit with me?

Your guests can choose to sit with you when purchasing a ticket by selecting your name from the “Table Captain Selection” dropdown menu located under “Event Preferences” when purchasing tickets to the Task Force Gala – Miami.

What happens if I don’t sell all of the seats at my table?

When you commit to filling a table, we consider those seats sold and include them in our attendance and fundraising calculations. We expect you to honor your commitment as a Table Captain and be responsible for ensuring we receive the revenue from those seats.

Can the Task Force help me fill my table?

Unfortunately, we cannot help you fill your table. However, we will provide you with online resources that will help you sell your seats. If you require additional information, we will provide that as well.
