Our Board of Directors
We seek a broad diversity of genders, races, cultures, geography and generations for our board member positions.
Board members participate as a Director in the oversight and administration of the ongoing activities and development of the organization.
Directors participate in a monthly board or a committee meeting, and assume a volunteer role in the organization based on their specific areas of interest and/or serve as an Officer of the Board.
Directors also take on various action items developed in board meeting, assist with monthly readings, and serve on a show curation team a couple times a year.
A director’s term of office is two years. Board members terms may be renewed through annual board elections.
