Hello QT Pies!

Join the QTPOC Board
QTPOC utilizes a non-hierarchical board structure and we would love for you to join us! If you are interested and/or have questions, please respond to this email and cc Alexandra (email@example.com). Board members can take on as much or as little labor as their schedule and energy allows. If there is a speaker you’d like to network with and plan an event for, an initiative you’d like support, or anything else please let us know!
QTPOC will be getting shirts!
If there is a QTPOC artist who you would like to suggest for the design (or if you would like to play a larger role in this project), please respond to this email.
