Board members must be members of the organization by making a financial contribution of any amount or volunteering at least 30 hours each fiscal year (August-July). Board terms are two-years long, and no member may serve more than six terms. SPECTRUM’S Board can have up to 13 members at a time.

SPECTRUM’s Board of Directors has adopted a mixed model of governance. Since the organization is largely volunteer run we use a modified Management Team Model in which members of the Board are tasked with some operational duties in the areas of human resources, financing, fundraising, and public relations. As the organization grows, we are moving towards a governance Board.

Having prior experience as a Board Director would be very helpful. Lived experience as a member of a 2SLGBTQ+ community or ally is essential. Board members must complete a successful police reference check for the vulnerable sector.
