For the second year in a row, Lambda Literary is pleased to announce an open call for interested parties to apply for a seat on our board of directors. Last year, this open call resulted in bringing Amy Scholder onto our board.

Our search is not limited to people in the publishing world. In fact, as you’re thinking about whether you or someone in your network might be a good board member, consider what we are looking for:

  • Skills: We need to round out our board skills in many areas, including Legal, Audit, Finance, Corporate Fundraising, Grant Writing, and Major Gifts.
  • Diversity: We would like for our board to better reflect the diversity of the communities that we serve in areas such as sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, geographic location, etc.
  • Basic Criteria: The board is primarily responsible for fundraising and governance. Each board member must have the ability to fulfill Board Member Expectations, including the $3,000 Give/Get (information about Expectations and Give/Get are available in our Board Member Application Packet).
  • Additional Criteria: The ability to promote a collaborative, team environment that is focused on the mission of Lambda Literary above all else is also very important

So, if you-or someone you know-has what it takes to be on the Lambda Literary Board, I invite you to fill out the application and submit it to [email protected] by midnight PT on Tuesday, September 30, 2014.

If you have any questions, please contact me at [email protected]
