Recruitment for the Board of Directors
Are you interested in joining the Board of Directors at GLEA? Great! We’re looking to onboard some new people in 2022.
Great Lakes Experimental Arts, Inc. is seeking highly-dedicated volunteers to join the Board of Directors. Board members are the legal face of Lakes of Fire and are directly responsible for the long term production and sustainability of our event. There are no prerequisites for joining other than a deep commitment to seeing Lakes of Fire continue to thrive.
If you feel you have the experience and desire to serve the organization, event, and attendees through this vital role, check out our Lakes Leadership page for more resources. We will be posting all virtual open house links and application forms there.
BoD BIPOC Open House
On August 1st at 3 pm ET, members of the GLEA Board of Directors will hold a virtual Open House specifically for BIPOC community members. This event is to allow BIPOC burners an opportunity to speak directly to the GLEA Board about the open Board positions.
The Board of Directors would like to hear the experiences and ideas of burners who are Black, Indigenous, or people of color and answer your questions about leadership and what the future of Lakes of Fire could look like.
If you are interested in applying to be on the Board of Directors or have questions or thoughts about leadership in our community, please join us.
This conversation is intended to open up space for those who are Black, Indigenous, or people of color, as their voices often go unheard in majority white spaces. There will be a Board Open House that is open to all on August 17th.
Check out our Lakes Leadership page for the Zoom link and more BoD application resources.
BoD Virtual Open House
On August 17th at 9 pm ET, the GLEA Board of Directors will host a virtual Open House. This event is open to the entire community. During the Open House, the Board will take most of the meeting time to describe the duties of the Board and answer questions from the community.
