TAP-SF 2018-2019 Board Applications
Applications open on a rolling basis. Apply now here!
Being on the TAP-SF board is a great way to foster community in the bay area, gain leadership experience, and collaborate with some of the most talented and passionate people in the Bay Area. TAP is structured with two layers of leadership, an elected executive team and an appointed cabinet (chairs/directors). Executive team members oversee the broader mission of TAP, while cabinet members plan and lead specific events and programs. Committee members support and collaborate with cabinet members on various initiatives.
If you’re ready to get involved and lead as a chair or help out as a committee member, we’d love to hear from you. You can fill out our application and send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org!
