Austin LGBT Chamber Committees
We are growing and changing the way we are governed. Our board has decided to adopt a committee structure to make recommendations to the board. The committees below will consist of board directors as well as general members. Members will apply to serve on the committee for 12 months. Each committee will meet 4-6 times in 2018 unless otherwise noted. Serving on a committee is a pathway to serving on the board.
Committees and their composition and areas of responsibilities are listed below:
Ambassadors are chamber members committed to welcoming new members and strengthening the bonds of membership! They attend orientations, ribbon cuttings and mixers. They are so special that they get their pictures on our website. They let people know about our programs and resources, and act as a buddy for new members, reaching out to the new member, personally inviting them to an upcoming event, and introducing them to other members. Serving as an ambassador is a pathway to serving on the board.
Chair: Paola Aguillon
The Events Committee shall ensure that the events produced by the ALGBTCC are in accordance with the needs of its members while driving economic development, education, social engagement and fundraising. This committee will also plan our annual gala event: PROUD! It will advise the board on changes or new programs to offer keeping in mind resources needed.
Chair: Tara Gray
