Our Team

Palm Springs Pride is governed by a Board of Directors and managed by the Pride Organizing Committee.

The event management and production of Pride-related programs are conducted by the Pride Organizing Committee.  Members of the Pride Committee take on individual responsibility for directing and overseeing the production of Pride programs each year; they are assisted by numerous administrative and event volunteers, contractors, and a few consultants.

Board of Directors and Committee

If you are interested in serving on the Board of Greater Palm Springs Pride, applications are accepted throughout the year, and appointments are generally made in January.

Pride Board members serve as the governing body and the Committee members manage all programs of the organization. They have a responsibility to assist with the fundraising of the organization and they serve as ambassadors in the community.

The board members review board applications in January.  Accepted applicants will serve for a period of one year as associate members (with a voice but without voting privileges). At the end of their associate period, the voting members of the Board will vote on granting the associates full board privileges based on their performance as associate directors.
