Signal boosting an awesome organization that I’ve mentioned a couple of times before, Con or Bust! For those unfamiliar with them, they are a non profit who provides financial assistance to fans of color to attend SFF conventions. They’re looking for new Board members* to help manage their workload for the coming year and are receiving applications for those interested in participating. Some description below, and full details can be found on their website about supporting a great cause.
If you value Con or Bust’s work, now’s a great time to get involved: at the end of January, up to four people can join Mark Oshiro, Tanya DePass, and Lulu Kadhim on our Board of Directors. I will be stepping down on the grounds that a decade is long enough (obligatory Grosse Pointe Blank reference), so this is a genuine opportunity to shape Con or Bust’s future and help it continue its work.
If you’re interested, please read on, and then email a short statement of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, January 25, 2019.
*Full disclosure: I served a term on the Board in the past, but am no longer involved on the Board.
