Our Mission is to create a safe environment for the purpose of Equality, Education, and Support of the LGBT community and their Allies.
Please review the basic responsibilities and expectations below. Feel free to reach out to current board members regarding any questions you may have.

Each Board Member is expected to:

  • Read, review and understand the contents of the Mission & Bylaws (PDF);
  • Read and abide by Have A Gay Day policies, including confidentiality policies;
  • Be informed about Have A Gay Days mission, services, and programs;
  • Attend at least 9 of the 12 regularly scheduled monthly meetings;
  • Attend functions and special events as appropriate to their Board position and to meet marketing and outreach purposes;
  • Take initiative and offer to lead on certain tasks, assignments, or committees as needed;
  • Communicate regularly via updates throughout the week, as well as provide a monthly activity summary;
  • Read other board members’ activity summaries prior to all board and committee meetings and assist in other ways to make board meetings efficient and productive;
  • Assist the board in carrying out its fiduciary responsibilities by assuring the organization is being managed in a fiscally responsible manner;
  • Attend trainings and events — or review articles and resources online — on non-profit board member duties and responsibilities, and share the information with the board at large to assure that Have A Gay Day meets its State and Federal obligations to maintain its non-profit status;
  • Suggest possible nominees to the board who can make significant contributions to the work of the board and the organization;
  • Contribute in some manner, either financially or through time and talent, to Have A Gay Days fundraising and development efforts and sustainability;
  • Inform others about, and promote, the organization and its mission, particularly in LGBTQ+ or intersectional spaces.
Time commitments:
  • Depending on the time of the year, board members can expect to spend an average of 8-20 hours a month preparing for programs and services, attending regularly scheduled meetings (online via Zoom or a phone conference call) or helping further the mission of Have A Gay Day. Executive Committee members (President, Secretary, Treasurer) may spend more time.
  • Board meetings typically take place on the 1st Tuesday of the month from 6:30pm EST to 8:00pm EST. (Our board members live and work in every timezone, so this is the current schedule to best accommodate our members.)

We work to develop a board that represents the communities we serve.
