My particpation as a board member:
I believe my experience in finance, business, marketing and communication will enable me to help the board and the center in several ways, including financial decisions raising revenue, increasing donations and members, and community outreach. More specifically, I volunteer for the following:
Column A – (1) Write three CNews articles (a column called “In Transition”) (2) Sit on the Financial Committee
Column B – Host and organize a Friendraiser (perhaps a LGBT Comedy Night)
Column C – Recruit 10 new members to the center members (including businesses).
In addition, I will help with planning our annual commemoration of the Transgender Day Remembrance, and perhaps initiate a Transgender Family Gala Celebration.
