Board of Directors
GeekGirlCon is searching for action-oriented individuals with experience in finance and analytics to join our board of directors. Please contact BDC@geekgirlcon.com for more information.
Roles & Responsibilities
The board of directors defines and guides our mission, establishes priorities, crafts strategies, and ensures that plans and programs are implemented. A big part of this work involves active engagement on one of our board committees, such as Fundraising, Board Development, or Strategic Planning. The primary day-to-day operations are delegated to our Executive Director and volunteer staff.
Board Directors are extensively involved in GeekGirlCon’s fundraising efforts. Directors are expected to spread the word about GeekGirlCon’s work, use their connections to gain access to potential donors, actively participate in fundraising campaigns, and when financially feasible, make their own donations. They also may be involved behind-the-scenes in fund development or directly solicit for donations.
If you wish to be considered as a candidate for the Board of Directors, please fill out our application located here: GeekGirlCon BOD Application . A member of the Board Development Committee will be in touch to discuss the position further.
GeekGirlCon celebrates and honors the legacy of women contributing to science and technology; comics, arts and literature; and game play and game design by connecting geeky women worldwide and creating community to foster continued growth of women in geek culture through events. GeekGirlCon has hosted over 100 special events since August 2010 and continues to create and collaborate on fun and geeky events throughout the year, including the annual convention.
GeekGirlCon is comprised of an all-volunteer staff dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the contribution of women in all aspects of geek culture. Our staff members have a range of geeky passions, from anime to coding and Dungeons & Dragons to nerdcore. You’ll catch us counting down the seconds until the next Doctor Who and rushing home to raid dungeons. GeekGirlCon welcomes all ages, races, sexual orientations, gender identities, creeds, physical and mental abilities, and familial statuses to our staff, volunteer team, and events.
