Nominations are open for four (4) Directors-at-Large for a period of two years—October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2014.
Board members become part of the strong, dynamic, and supportive team that develops DignityUSA’s programs, ensures we have adequate resources to carry out our work, and sets strategic priorities for the future. We are currently seeking leaders with organizational development, marketing, fund-raising, or human resource management talents and experience. In order to ensure proportional representation, we are especially interested in members from the southern and western parts of the US, who are Latino/a, transgender, openly bisexual or allies of the LGBT Catholic community.
DignityUSA President Lourdes Rodriguez said, “Because of the generosity of our donors, DignityUSA’s budget is able to cover some of the costs of Board travel. We’re excited about this, because it should help people who have great talent but limited financial resources find being on the Board more feasible. We know this has been an issue in the past, and we’ve worked hard to remove the financial barriers. Personally, I don’t want money to be an obstacle for anyone with the passion and talent to serve DignityUSA.”
