Volunteer or a Sussex Pride Board Committee

If you’re interested in getting more involved in Sussex Pride, serving on a board committee may be a good fit for you. Our Board of Directors has three standing committees, and you do not need to be a board member to volunteer for one of these committees. It is an excellent way to meet some of our board members and get a feel for what our organization is like.

Below is more detailed information about what each board committee is working. The goals for the year for each committee are listed. Some of these have already been completed, and some are still in process.

If you are interested in potentially serving on a board committee please complete the volunteer interest form and check which committee you are interested in.
