On August 8th, the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Central Maryland (GLCCB) board met for their monthly meeting. The board’s search for new members continues, with 20 applications having been received and others expected; 14 people have already been interviewed. One new board member, Kayla Tullis, officially joined at this meeting. Four prospective members attended the meeting and answered questions on their experience, qualifications, and goals.

A debriefing was held by center staff with Baltimore City Parks and Recreation about Pride 2017. The meeting was very positive, and for the first time in recent memory the city returned the event’s security deposit to the center. The board said it has chosen Father’s Day weekend in 2018 for Baltimore Pride, to ensure it did not compete with other regional Prides.

The board announced that the GLCCB will partner with Baltimore Black Pride 2017 to help develop and coordinate events.

Among other updates, the center website at GLCCB.org shows new improvements; the center is getting a lot of interests from universities as well as list-serves to provide volunteer support; and the center is also interviewing candidates for a fund-raising position.

The GLCCB Annual Meeting and Town Hall will be held in place of the monthly board meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 12th, at the GLCCB (2530 North Charles Street, third floor, Baltimore). At the meeting, there will be a review of the most recent strategic plan and update on its implementation. There will be a report on the year in review, as well as the review going forward. Additional new board members will officially join during the meeting.
