The Brandon Pride Committee will be holding its Annual General Meeting on September 10th. We are looking for new Board Members and Volunteers to help organize events during Pride Week and throughout the year. If you are community-minded, reliable, respectful, passionate about queer issues, and work well with others, we invite you to join the Pride Committee!
Executive Board members will be elected at the AGM so if you are interested in putting your name forward, please attend the event or let us know how you would like to help out. Executive positions include: Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.
Going forward, we would like to see our LGBTTQ2S+ community broadly represented on the Committee so we encourage people from all walks of life to join our organization. Have ideas or suggestions for events or topics you want to see addressed? Share your feedback with us.
Special thanks to everyone who helped out during the 2018 Pride Week!
