Individuals who have met the required conditions of the first and second tier probationary periods, and have received a favorable vote of the current board of directors may become full-standing members of the board. Those wishing to serve on the board of directors who have previously held positions on other non-profit boards or have successfully completed their term as a member of the SNAPI Board may present themselves for an interview with the board and may be permitted to forgoe any probationary requirements with board approval. For all prospective board members it is imperative that there be an understanding of the serious time committment required of all board members. It is expected that, for example, that all board members commit a minimum of 40 volunteer hours during each PRIDE Celebration. Board members are given two official board member shirts and a name tag. All members of the board are required to sit on a minimum of at least one standing committee. They are also required to attend all SNAPI functions, events, workshops, and board meetings. At each of these gatherings, board member attendance is taken. *NOTE: ALL Members of the Board are REQUIRED to attend the PRIDE Festival, Parade, and ALL major PRIDE Celebration events.
