Seeking New Members for Our Board of Directors

glbtlogoThe GLBT Historical Society collects, preserves, presents and interprets the history of LGBTQ people and the communities that support them in Northern California and beyond. Founded in 1985, we are recognized internationally as a leader in the field of LGBTQ public history.

The society┬áis entering an exciting and challenging time, as we enrich our diverse collections and educate new generations in the midst of economic pressures on nonprofit organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Demand for access to our exhibitions, programs and extensive archives continues to rise — and we are constantly collecting more historical material from all parts of the LGBTQ community.

We’re looking for board members who believe in our mission and are energetic contributors. This work has never been more important than it is today. We ask board members to play an active governance role and expect that they participate in at least one working committee. We also pride ourselves on supporting each other as a diverse and dynamic team, working collaboratively and offering opportunities for our board members to learn and grow with the organization.

If you wish to be considered, we ask that you complete our brief response form.
