OUR BOARD

FATE is run by a 100% volunteer-based working board. We are strongly committed towards a more diverse board and we benefit from the contributions and efforts of our membership to implement these intentions. We encourage you to reach out to any existing board member to share feedback or to pursue further involvement with FATE. Should you be interested in joining the board, officers will be elected during the biennial conference. Nominations will be sought from FATE members. Additional write-in nominations will be permitted for each office. The election will be based on the majority vote of the entire membership; including members attending the conference and members unable to attend the conference.
