CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Human Rights Campaign North Carolina board of directors and board of governors have announced that they are seeking co-chairs for its 2015 gala to be held on Feb. 21, 2015 in the Queen City.

The co-chairs are pivotal to more than just the success of the event. As a result of their leadership, energy and hard work, the organization is able to continue its mission to ensure basic equal rights for LGBT people.

Organizers said that gala co-chairs are responsible for raising critical funds for HRC, through the city’s dinner and gala event; cultivating, educating leading and motivating the dinner committee members; building and nurturing new relationships with other organizations in the community; and succession plan/infrastructure development. Co-chairs must be able to have a flexible schedule and meet key deadlines for the gala.

Applications are due by March 28 and announcement will be on April 25.
