If elected, all positions require a minimum commitment of at least two hours per month on GISMO related activities in addition to attending meetings once, every two months. Board meetings are held at the offices of the Fund for the City of New York in Lower Manhattan.
We expect to be holding a GISMO meeting just before balloting is to begin – in early December – so that our members will have an opportunity to meet and question the candidates. The time and place of that meeting will be announced in early November.
