Equality Texas is looking for a few good board members, especially from places like Dallas

Last week we told you that in the face of staffing cuts, Equality Texas plans to rely heavily on active, volunteer board members to assist with lobbying duties during the state legislative session that began today.

Well, it turns out that the group is also looking for a few additional board members, and particularly people of color from Dallas, El Paso, Lubbock and Corpus Christi. An ad posted Monday on SmartBrief Jobs notes that Equality Texas board members serve a maximum of three two-year terms and have a fundraising requirement of $7,500 in 2011, which will increase to $10,000 in 2012:

This is a challenging opportunity with an emerging organization dedicated to the most compelling civil rights issue of our time. It may appeal to a younger person whose career would be enhanced by association with a high profile organization that can effect social change, as well as by the opportunity for building relationships with other business and civic leaders who serve as Directors. Alternatively, this might appeal to a more senior executive who has a strong personal conviction about the importance of addressing these issues in the state of Texas.
