Palm Springs Pride is governed by a Board of Directors that meet up to eleven times a year. Members of the board are not required to serve on the Pride Organizing Committee.
The event management and production of Pride related programs is conducted by the Pride Organizing Committee. Members of the Pride Committee take on individual responsibility for directing and overseeing the production of Pride programs each year; they are assisted by numerous administrative and event volunteers, contractors and a few consultants.
Palm Springs Pride is governed by a Board of Directors. If you are interested in serving on the Board of Greater Palm Springs Pride, applications are accepted throughout the year and appointments are generally made in January.
Pride Board members serve as the governing body of the organization. They have a responsibility to assist with fundraising of the organization and they serve as ambassadors in the community.
The voting board members review board applications in January. Accepted applicants will serve for a period of one year as associate members (with a voice but without voting privileges). At the end of their associate period the voting members of the Board will vote on granting the associates full board privileges based on their performance as associate directors.
