Your Billy Board Needs You


Several current members will be completing their terms in the next several months and stepping down. The Board will need at least four new members by May. People with prior board experience are much appreciated but absolutely not required. It takes many skills, qualities, and talents to make our organization work—all are honored! 

The Billy Foundation is firmly committed to reflecting the diversity of our community and Billys of color are especially requested to reach out!  

What’s in it for you?

  • You learn, grow and deepen friendships with your fellow Billys.

  • You enjoy camaraderie, personal satisfaction of giving back to our community, and maybe even reap some good karma.

What’s the commitment?
