New board members are being sought for the 40-year-old GLBT Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland (GLCCB). The center’s leadership notes that a full and productive board is critical in maximizing the center’s growth.
“GLCCB is on the upswing of a remarkable transformation some thought was impossible,” former executive director and current board president Jabari Lyles told the Blade. “We listened to our community, owned up to our criticisms, and re-laid the foundation for the community center Baltimore needs.”
Lyles explained that the GLCCB performs services for community members who need it most and that a strong board will make decisions that will help reach out to the LGBT communities.
“Our staff serves hundreds of family members each month with events, seminars and case management,” Lyles said. “Each year, we produce Maryland’s largest LGBTQ event, Baltimore Pride. Every day our doors are open is a day an intentional, safe space is available to those who need it. We will only be able to continue this work with a strong, resourced board of directors.”
He added, “We are looking for innovative, experienced individuals who are poised to address the priorities of our community and our city.”
