Candidates for the BIFD Board of Directors
We are currently soliciting nominations for the board - your own or that of someone you think would do a good job at keeping the organization vibrant!
Many of our current board members have been serving for many years and would love the support, energy and enthusiasm of additional members (as well as an opportunity to step down from the board and take a well deserved break if possible). To that end, we encourage our members to consider running for the board this year.
You may wonder what being on the board entails...
Typically, we meet every other month for approximately 2 hours. (Alternating Friday and Saturday).
Additionally, each board member takes on work between meetings - as they are able -including activities such as treasury duties, creating flyers, updating the website, communicating with potential teachers or musicians, etc.
Finally, there are coordination tasks, as well as set up and take down for our events.
We are aided in our efforts by tireless volunteers who help make the engagement lighter.
Please submit your candidacy or nomination for the board by March 2, 2018. You may do so in person with anyone on the board (Jane, Nancy, Susan, Steward, Yannick) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unable to run for the board, please consider volunteering. We'd love to hear from you (same contact people and email as for board nominations).
