- The Branding, Digital and Social Media Committee, often referred to as the BDSM Committee, works collaboratively to ensure the Gaymber’s social media and marketing efforts are on point! These folx love making sure we look polished and always put our best foot forward. This committee is great for folx with backgrounds in graphic design and marketing. BDSM meets quarterly and connects regularly via text and Trello. Interested? Drop them a note and we’ll get you plugged in!
If you’ve been thinking of getting more involved, now is a great time! We also have a few vacancies on our BOARD OF DIRECTORS, and would love to chat with you if you are interested in serving in this way. Diversity of thought and lived experience is very important to us, and as such we prioritize queer, trans, and BIPOC candidates. Reply to this email or give me a call!
We hope to see you at any of these upcoming meetings as we kick off the new committees for the new year! Here’s to a wonderful, inclusive and positive 2024!
