Board Committee Leadership

Patrick's Cabaret seeks Volunteer Board Committee members to assist with leading this important organization into its next exciting era.

Board Committees

Board Committees are structured to assist the Board with the work of the organization. Each Committee is assigned a "charge," or general area guiding its work. While Board members are elected, Board Committee membership is open to all, and is the best way to "try out" Board duties and demonstrate your commitment ahead of serving on the elected Board of Directors.

If you are interested in serving on a Board Committee, please review the Committee charges below and contact the Committee Chair assigned to each Committee to start a conversation. If you're unsure of where you might fit best, please email Board Chair Peter Foster at peterjfostermpls@gmail.com to determine where your talents might best find a home.
