About the BRC
The Bisexual Resource Center works to connect the bi+ community and help its members thrive through resources, support, and celebration. Through this work, we envision an empowered, visible, and inclusive global community for bi+ people. The BRC is a volunteer-led organization, guided by the governing board. See our About page for more information.
What the board does
This board is a governing board, but also the sole workforce of the BRC. Though we now have one staff person (WOOOO!), board members should be ready to roll up their sleeves to take on volunteer tasks. At any given moment, a board member might be…
- Packing up a bi flag and button to send to a person who just came out in Australia
- Writing an email to a concerned parent whose child just came out as pan
- Retweeting a silly bi+ meme or brilliant thread on bi+ erasure
- Hosting an online support group-Emceeing an open mic event
- Writing or editing brochures on queer topics for the website
- Presenting at a conference on how to start your own bi+ group
- Tabling at a conference (as seen above), sharing merch and resources
- Sitting in a monthly board meeting checking in with each other about how we’re doing, both professionally and personally
Expectations of board members
All board members attend a virtual monthly meeting and volunteer to oversee at least one ongoing project or area of responsibility. Most board members dedicate 5 hours a month of BRC tasks, with an increase around special events. Board members are focused in the greater Boston area, though there are members across the country. Board members are expected to have experience and understanding of the broad bisexual+ community. Our board members are expected to be champions for intersectional justice.
At this time, we are looking for board members in the Boston area to better be able to help with local events.
Skills we are looking for
In particular, we hope to find board members who can help us with financial management or accounting, social media, and project management. Other skills that are always useful include writing, event organizing, people coordination, and nonprofit oversight.
If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a resume and a brief letter explaining your interest in joining the board. We especially encourage those with marginalized gender, ability, race and ethnicity, cultural background, and other intersectional identities to apply.
Our board is composed of people with various professional and personal backgrounds, and our intention is to be an empowering board who specifically welcome folks who may feel excluded.
