The 107ist board elections are coming soon, and all interested 107ist members are encouraged to run for office. As a board member, you can help shape everything from how we interact with the Timbers and Thorns front office, to organizing charitable drives, to inspiring new ways to get our merchandise into the hands of soccer fans.
Board members are asked to attend and participate in all scheduled board meetings (currently the second Tuesday of each month). Additionally, board members serve on subcommittees including tifo, travel, merch, finance, membership, game day operations, communications, and more. Board members also may be asked to assist with special events and other tasks as they arise. If elected, you can expect to spend a minimum of 15-20 hours per week on board-related tasks.
