As PRISM is a nonprofit organization, we need members on our board to make deciding factors for the entire organization and to lead all aspects of PRISM. As we are a nonprofit, Board Members do not receive a paycheck, but they do receive the satisfaction that they are helping an organization for LGBT youth.
Board Members attend monthly Board Meetings and learn parliamentary procedure under Roberts Rules Of Order. It would be ideal for a Board Member to be active within one of PRISM's task forces in order to help further contribute. However, this is not required.
It is preferred that applicants have experience with one or more of the following: parliamentary procedure, serving on a board of directors, nonprofit management, volunteer management, nonprofit law, grant writing, fundraising, LGBT advocacy, public health, or youth services.
