Belfast Pride is proud to announce that we have successfully incorporated as a Company and the first meeting of Belfast Pride Ltd took place on 11/8/21. The current Board of Trustees of Belfast Pride and relevant positions are:
Rain Watt – Co-Chair
Seán Ó Néill – Co-Chair
Cara McCann – Co-Vice Chair
Craig Kirkwood – Co-Vice Chair
Liam Cripps – Treasurer
Tracey Smyth – Senior Events Officer
Steve Williamson – Trustee
John O’Doherty – Trustee
Lynn Millar – Trustee
Officers have been appointed on an Interim basis. The Board of Trustees wants to ensure that Belfast Pride has all the skills it needs to deliver the festival and be fully representative of our community and will now undertake a skills and representation audit and then carry out recruitment to help the board meet any identified gaps. Volunteers are key to making Belfast Pride happen and we will also be reviewing volunteering and seeking to add to our volunteer team. We are planning to start recruitment for operational volunteers and Trustees later this year.
Over the coming months the Board of Belfast Pride will be developing a plan of work that will include communication, consultation, strategic planning and fundraising to help make Belfast Pride 2022 the best it can be. We would like to thank our community, partners and sponsors for their ongoing support and we look forward to welcoming you all in person to Belfast Pride in 2022.
