Have you ever wanted to become more involved in the GRCA movement? The Nominations Committee is excited to let you know that Board Nominations are now open for 2018.


The GRCA seeks new Board members to help shepherd the organization to the next chapter in its growth. Candidates should have experience with girls rock camp programs, passion for the GRCA’s mission, and an interest in shaping its future. Nominees do not need to be affiliated with a member camp.

The GRCA strives to elevate and amplify the voices of those directly affected by oppressive structures, and encourages nominees who identify as members of communities that have been historically underrepresented in decision-making bodies, or whose power has been removed through colonization, to apply for the Board of Directors – this includes (but is not limited to) trans people, people who experience racial discrimination, indigenous people, differently abled/disabled people, poor/working class people.

  • The GRCA Board meets monthly online (most often via Google Video Chat), in addition to meeting twice annually in-person (one mid-term board retreat and meetings before and after the annual conference). If needed, financial assistance is available to cover travel for Board members to attend the in-person meetings.
  • Board meetings are currently conducted in English.
  • Members serve two-year terms, with no more than 3 consecutive terms.

Interested? Check out the 2018 GRCA Board Prospectus to find out more details.

Nominations are due March 10th, after which the Nominations Committee will form a slate that will be presented at the Annual Member Meeting during the 2018 GRCA Conference. In forming the slate, the Nominations Committee considers the following factors in camp representation: camp location (rural/urban, as well as regional/continental diversity), camp age (start-up camps as well as more established camps), language (camps that use English as primary language and camps with other languages as first language), and more.

Questions? The GRCA Nominations Committee is here to help (find out more about us below!). Email us at: nomination@girlsrockcampalliance.org.
