rpbg_logoRALEIGH, N.C. — The Raleigh Business and Professional Network has announced that it is seeking nominations for its board of directors and officers. Final date for submission is June 30.

Candidates who are active paid members should be committed to serving one hour a month to attend board meetings on the third Wednesday, plus any other time that individuals wish to contribute. Networking socials and dinner meeting attendance is not required, but encouraged.

For those who serve, the organization wants to ensure that the network remains a viable resource for LGBT professionals in the Raleigh area.

Guest speaker will be Chris Srgo, executive director for Equality North Carolina.

He will also share what his organization has on tap for the coming year.
