Board of Directors

The Board guides the general membership of Bunny Hosts throughout the year as they work through the key steps in preparation for the big event.

Their responsibilities range from simple administrative duties like collecting membership dues, to more involved endeavors, like solidifying sponsorship agreements. They are elected into Board membership status by the Hosts, and requires 1 full year as a host in good standing to be illegible for nomination.

“It is the people who are different that make the advances, that create the new ideas, who dream dreams and have visions of what can be, not satisfied with what is. So be courageous, and don’t be afraid to be all that you are, even when sometimes you feel different.”
