Seattle Out and Proud (SOaP), producers of the annual Seattle PrideĀ® Parade, seeks several at-large board members to fill recently vacated spots. Ideal candidates will have a passion to serve the LGBT community by advancing our dual missions of advocating for equal rights for all persons and presenting the best and largest LGBT event in the Pacific Northwest.

The time commitment required to serve in these positions varies and depends on the tasks taken on. In general, from October through March, one should expect to spend a minimum of 1-2 hours per week on board business. From April through June, the activity level accelerates and you should expect to spend between 5-10 hours per week on board matters.

Additional qualifications include:

Generous and gracious support of the organization in all its fundraising efforts, based on one's individual financial capacity and one's network of community resources.

Professional and/or personal skills and expertise you willingly offer to serve the organization, e.g. fundraising, grant writing, graphic design, volunteer coordination.

Ability to honor open and honest communications.

Availability to do "homework" regarding the organization and be willing to attend training sessions and retreats and, in general, commit to being part of a learning, growing organization.

Willingness to participate in an annual evaluation, both individually and as a group to better understand the strengths and opportunities of the organization.

Candidates should submit the following information:

1. A brief statement on why you'd like to serve on the board.
