Members at Large

Following the Board elections by the members each year, the incoming Officers of the Board will select between two and eight at-large members to join the Board for a one-year term. At-Large members have full voting rights on the Board and have the opportunity to bring their voice and their platform to a leadership position in the organization.
 
If you are interested in being considered for a member at large position please fill out the following Board Election Declaration and and email it to elections@lakesidepride.org by Thursday April 1, 2021.
 
Once we have it you will get an email from us confirm receipt and then after April 1 you will get an email with full instructions. We will be doing “speed dating style” 5-10 minute interviews at our next board meeting on Monday April 12th. The first half of our meeting will be general business and the second half will be the interviews. Once we have interviewed everyone we will pick up to 8 people and then notify you. Your term is 1 year from May 1, 2021 to April 30, 2022.
FAQs about being a Member at Large:
Q: What is the time commitment?
A: You should plan on attending our monthly board meetings, 2nd Monday of every month from 7-9pm usually at Center on Halsted. Outside of board meetings, you should plan on being able to respond to emails regularly and work on committee work throughout the week. With the occasional committee meetings as needed.
 
Q: Do I need any special skills to serve as a member at large?
A: You need a willingness to help and do work. If you have extra skills we will put the to good use. The biggest tech that we use that you will need to be familiar with is google drive (Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and Email) as this is what we use as our primary source of communication. If you have any special skills like WordPress, Photo Shop, Writing, Copy Editing, etc we will absolutely put them to good use.
