Our volunteer board of directors works with TGP staff to do strategic planning for our future, develop and approve our annual budget, and serve as spokespeople for our work. Having a diverse and active board is an important part of our organizational structure, and we conduct our main board recruitment once per year. Our annual board recruitment period has closed for 2022, but you can sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the page to stay in the loop for our next application cycle.

​The Details:

In-person activities take place at various locations around Fort Collins. We try to make meetings as accessible as possible when it comes to things like scheduling, transportation for in-person gatherings, and similar.
