On Sunday, January 24, 2016 at 12:30 pm Bisexual Organizing Project (BOP) will host it's annual meeting in Hosmer Library community meeting room.
BOP's annual meeting presentation is a great way to learn more about the history of BOP and how the organization operates. The presentation will cover highlights from 2015 and discuss upcoming events and programs of note. You will also hear about leadership and volunteer opportunities and have the opportunity to ask board Chair Camille Holthaus questions.
Annual elections will follow the presentation. All people attending the meeting may vote. Nominations are made during the meeting. If you are unable to attend but wish to participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t be shy about getting involved! BOP elections are very low key.
The following positions will be elected:
The 2014 board made a commitment to actively support social justice within the bi+ community as well as for the bi+ community This commitment was continued by the 2015 board with a particular emphasis on racial justice.To this end, the 2015 board members who plan to run for election again are specifically seeking people of color and trans/genderqueer individuals who are interested in being a part of this work to join them on the board.

BECAUSE 2020 Cancelled
The BECAUSE leadership team and the BOP board have been reviewing forecasts for what this Fall will look like including continued COVID hotspots, limitations on travel, and how people are going to be feeling about being large groups. We feel the most responsible action at this time is to cancel BECAUSE 2020. We have explored moving the conference on line as many conferences and gatherings have done and find it is not the best option for BECAUSE.
The BOP board is developing virtual community building that we hope will help bridge this time for our community. Please check out BOP's Facebook Page, Facebook Group, Meetup Group, and Twitter to stay informed of upcoming events.
We are currently in discussion with our location, Wellstone Center, and our planned speakers and special guests to make BECAUSE 2021 one of the best ever. We hope you will join us in October 2021.
