Interested in Being a Board Member?

We want you! We would like to invite you to next month's FGI Seattle Board meeting on July 30th at Westlake Tutta Bella at 7pm (RSVP to me). We are looking to add to our already dynamic board and wanted to extend the invitation out to current members who may be interested in serving on the FGI Board.

The time commitment is relatively low and the only financial commitment is to pay your membership dues (which you have probably already done) and pay the nominal fee at FGI events that you already attend. There are a variety of roles and projects to be involved in from a Board Secretary to membership to programming, pr, and more (see below). You would need to be available to attend monthly board meetings (usually second Tuesday of the month in downtown Seattle for 1.5 hours) and come to or help plan some events and post on the blog. Otherwise it's a lot of networking and building visibility for FGI.

The board is at a turning point where we see your involvement being incredibly helpful and vital to the success of the board.

Please give this some thought and let me know what questions you may have.

We look forward to serving with you and making FGI Seattle all that it can be!
