What Does It Mean to Be a Board Member?
The Pride Board consists of the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors. These board members work all year long to produce the New Mexico Pride Pageant, OUTstanding Awards, the New Mexico HIV/AIDS Walk, the Pride Parade and PrideFest as well as other LGBTIQ community oriented events throughout the year. Elections are held for the Board every year in August. Board meetings are held at least monthly and are open to the community.
As the largest and most successful LGBTIQ organization in New Mexico it has become rewarding and an honor for those who have served on this board.
Please do not be intimidated by the responsibilities and qualifications of each position. We are an all-volunteer organization, which makes it challenging to recruit dedicated board members. We understand that having a passion for volunteer work and determination to make a difference are also important qualities that we appreciate and honor, too. It is important that this team support one another and help each other to grow while serving the community.
These are working positions; we expect your commitment to the board just as we expect the board to be committed to you.
