June GLCCB Board Meeting Notes

Written by  Bill Redmond-Palmer

Updates on Pride and the quest for new board members were topics of discussion at the June 5th board meeting of the GLCCB, Baltimore’s LGBT community center. The board’s search for new board members continues and three interviews have been completed. More interviews of the applications received are being scheduled. Three interested people attended the meeting and answered questions on their experience, qualifications, and goals.

The board received a brief update on Pride plans from the committee chairs.

It was announced that Key’Ashia Tucker, the longest serving employee at the Center, has resigned her position as case manager to pursue a nursing career.

More information about the organizational incubator space helped clarify how it would work. The Center for Black Equity and the Baltimore Trans Alliance will be using spaces during the day for their operations, and the same spaces will be open for use by the community during the evening, providing for more efficient use of space for the center.

FreeState Justice will be working with the center and others to develop a series of events to provide community mediation among the Charles Village neighborhood associations, police, and sex workers to help deescalate the tension sometimes evident among those groups.

It was noted that there is a need to make sex workers in Station North aware that the area for the block party will be cleared prior to the event, and to make sure those participating are sensitive in their efforts.

The next board meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 11th at the GLCCB (2530 North Charles Street, third floor, Baltimore).
