About the NFWFWF Board of Directors

The Board of Directors consists of a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 11 members who are responsible for processing applications and awarding grants. The Board oversees all committees, activities and events.

The dual purpose of the Board and the Committees is first, to raise funds to replenish monies for healthcare/crisis grants and general operation of the organization; and second, to promote events and activities that foster and build the social and community life of lesbians and our friends who live on or visit the North Fork of Long Island, NY.

Board members are elected for 3 year terms. Once the Board is selected in January of each year, the new Board selects their officers: President, Secretary and Treasurer. The office of president is divided into three one-year terms, first as President-Elect, then as President and finally as Past-President.

You must be a member of NFWFWF to serve on the Board. Membership is free and open to any self-identified lesbian who resides on a full time, part-time or seasonal basis in the geographical area from Riverhead Township to Orient Point and Shelter Island.
