PFLAG Asheville has a rewarding opportunity for individuals to serve on the Board of the local Asheville chapter of PFLAG, promoting support, education and advocacy for LGBTQ persons and their families. This is a NEW chapter as of 2018 and there are plenty of exciting opportunities for us to make a difference!
Our Executive Board is seeking to add additional board members so that we may accomplish more within our community, and have more of a team and committee-based project style. We are looking for individuals of various capabilities and strengths to join us. Help us shape what this next year will look like for PFLAG Asheville! How can you help us make a difference?
