Dear Friends and Supporters,
The Gleaners are Growing! We brought nearly 5,000 more pounds of fresh, local produce to people in need in 2011 than we did in 2010.
We have more volunteers, donors, recipients, grants, and funders than ever before, but we still are only scratching the surface of our potential impact on the local food system. Our current board and staff are putting structures in place to enable BAG to grow sustainably.
To that end, BAG is looking for 3-5 people to add to our working Board of Directors. Passion for our mission and time to devote to the work of building the organization are the main requirements. However, people who can contribute skills and experience in accounting, publicity, and fundraising are especially sought.
The Board meets in the evening every 4-6 weeks. Additional time to devote to one committee or project is also needed. Board members serve 2 year terms.
We ask that interested candidates submit a letter of interest and resume to the BAG search committee by February 29, 2012. Board member terms will start at the upcoming Annual Meeting, on April 1, 2012.
Send inquiries and applications to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't hesitate to contact us with questions! And thanks for your continued support.
