Join OUT for Sustainability for the first fabulous (Bio)Diesel social in Seattle at the famed gay bar Diesel. We’ll be camping it up with a green flavor for the night with a great happy hour from 5-7pm. This event is 21 and over.
OUT for Sustainability (OUT4S) board members determine and support the strategic direction of the organization, including maintaining its functional and financial stability. Board members are expected to make certain that the organization stays true to its mission and vision. The board is made up of individuals who reflect a variety of skill, perspective and experience to strengthen the organization by that diversity.
OUT4S is a national board, so you do not need to live in Seattle to apply.
The OUT4S Board meets for two retreats per year in July and January, and regular conference-call meetings. In addition to the board, OUT4S has four committees for board members and other volunteers to impact with varying levels of time commitment:
- Manage: Supporting the operations and finance of OUT4S.
- Advance: Supporting the fundraising, volunteers, and partners of OUT4S.
- Serve: Planning and executing the Earth Gay program including hosted and facilitated events and other events focused on local action and connection.
- Advocate: Vetting, prioritizing, and acting on issues for OUT4S to influence and impact as well as the educational mediums we host including events like the annual conference.
OUT4S is now taking applications for the board from individuals with passion for sustainability and making a difference in our community. OUT4S board terms are two years. Inquire for more detail on roles and responsibilities.
Please click here to download the board application, and submit it to OUT4S Board President Gerod Rody at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 30th, 2014. Also contact Gerod with any questions or to meet and discuss the opportunity further.
If you’re interested in engaging, but not necessarily as a board member, consider volunteering.
OUT for Sustainability invites you to connect with others in the Seattle Area LGBTQ (and allied) sustainability community who are working, studying or interested in social and environmental action. This is a chance for conversation and good times at the Polar Bar in Downtown Seattle.
Join us as 4:30pm to relax with great people before kicking off at 5:00pm where we’ll have people briefly share their work or ideas and then let folks discuss over beverages from there!
One topic we may delve into is unpacking our statement that “OUT4S was founded on the premise that LGBTQ identity and the sustainability values are absolutely interconnected and partnerships, action and fun must be the cornerstones of our work.” Eager to hear your thoughts by emailing email@example.com.
