We began in 2014 as a volunteer collective producing and supporting activities (Black Lesbian Conferences, National LGBTQ+ Women’s Survey, Women Sweet on Women Black Lesbian Film Festival, etc.) that affirm and empower Black lesbians. Now that we‘re a 501(c) 3 non profit organization, we’re developing a more efficient organizational structure through capacity building activities. Integral to this work is establishing our board of directors and subsequent committees that will lead and guide us to the successful completion of our mission. Our board will be a “working board” where members perform not only their fiduciary and strategic duties, but also partner with staff and volunteers to fulfill management and technical functions. This may include helping fundraise, attending occasional organization and volunteer events, and leading others under our focus areas to achieve organization objectives. 

Board Member General Responsibilities - These include but are not limited to the following. Responsibilities for specific positions will be provided.

  • Organization of the board of directors, officers and committees.

  • Formulation and oversight of policies and procedures.

  • Financial management, including adoption and oversight of the annual budget.

  • Organizational leadership and advisement.

Length of Board Term - Board term will be two years. Directors can be elected to any number of consecutive terms as determined by the Board.
