The Board of Directors strives to uphold our community's values and goals. Community is about building people up and making sure they have a voice; a duty that each board member takes with pride. As community members themselves, this board has taken to the task of doing the best they can to support, facilitate, and encourage community and community building.

Berith has a passion for bootblacking, and has earned himself a household name in the local leather and kink communities as the go-to bootblack. His other passions include entomology, genetics, body modification, philosophy, poetry, queer and disability studies.
A pragmatic thinker, Tony is well equipped to help the board think from different angles on matters. He is isn't afraid of playing opposition in a constructive manner to help the board be the best they can be. Tony often draws parallels between things and how they might relate, affect and appertain to each other. We aren't 100% sure, but we think being a skilled Magic The Gathering player might have helped him with this.
Naru has worked in the financial industry for nearly a decade and has sat as treasurer on another community board. He is both dependable and well organized.
