Open letter to the community from San Diego Pride's Board of Directors

San Diego LGBT Pride extends its appreciation for the concerns and support you have provided. Keeping the channels of communication open for feedback is of utmost importance to us. And as such, we have created a brand new feedback link on our website to receive your comments; positive, negative and hopefully constructive.The address is feedback@sdpride.org

One of our top priorities is and always has been focused on expanding and diversifying Pride's Board of Directors. In an immediate response to bring the Pride Board up in numbers we will be adding three interim board members and one candidate to the Pride roster. A formal announcement about those individuals will be made in the coming week.

The board application packet is being updated into a professional format that does the application process justice.It will be ready for distribution at the Pride office by the end of this month.Until then, anyone interested in receiving a packet should contact Vernon Lowe at humanresources@sdpride.org. Vernon will respond to all inquires.

In addition to the Board of Directors, serving San Diego LGBT Pride can be done in many other ways. Our production team, which is responsible for creating the Equality Torch Relay, parade and festival as well as our sponsorship, volunteer and marketing programs, could always benefit from community input.

Information about all facets of San Diego Pride can be found at www.sdpride.org.

Again, we thank you for your care, concerns and comments. They provide valuable lessons and instruction on how to create a better organization for all of us.

The Equality Torch Relay will take place on Saturday, June 5th, and the annual San Diego Pride celebration will be held July 17th and 18th. Our promise to you is that as always, we will produce events that ALL can be proud of.
