MAC Board Is Seeking More Women In many boardrooms across the country, women are systematically and deliberately excluded. Even many non-profit boards have gone no farther than token inclusions. Houston is fortunate to have many strong and viable community non profit organizations. One of these, the Montrose Activity Center, is seeking parity on its board. MAC was founded as The Gav Community Center December 8, 1975, and one year later took the current name and acquired its legal tax exempt status under the IR Code Section 501-c-3. MAC has sheltered many worthy causes over the years, including Starnite, Pride Week, Gay & Lesbian Hispanic Unidos, Gay/Lesbian Student Association at U of H, AIDS Equity League and others. The MAC Board recently decided that the time had arrived to find and secure a gay and lesbian community center. Women willing to work on the planning and fundrais- ing for that goal are encouraged to call Clyde Williams (who recently spoke at LI.B.) at 236-0064 for more information.
