Board of Directors

The CenterLink Board of Directors advises, governs, oversees policy and direction, and assists with the leadership and general promotion of the organization so as to support its mission and needs.  In keeping with our organizational value of governance by an inclusive and open process, a majority of seats on the Board are held by leaders of LGBT community centers and are elected by a vote of all member centers.  A limited number of Board seats are filled by appointment, in order to assure representation of diverse viewpoints and appropriate expertise to prudently govern CenterLink.  Board elections are held in late Fall for two-year terms beginning in January.  The Board generally meets monthly by conference call, and in person two or three times per year.

Metro Wellness & Community Centers
Executive Director
St. Petersburg, Florida

↓ show bio

Lorraine Langlois, Executive Director of Metropolitan Charities, has been running what is now one of the largest and most respected HIV/AIDS and GBLT service organization for over 15 years. However, it is surprising how few people know who she is.

Langlois, a native of Ottawa , Ontario (Canada) had worked for the Canadian government for 14 years and decided she needed a change and return to school. Her parents had a condo in one of the Suncoast beach communities, so she was somewhat familiar with the area. She decided St. Petersburg would be a good place to start her new life.

Lorraine, acquired a Health Management degree at St. Pete College to add to her U.S. government recognized Business Management degree. Her involvement with King of Peace Metropolitan Community Church came about when she started dating one of the church’s ministers. “I got real involved in the life of the church,” she says, “and helped out with some of the administrative work of Metropolitan Charities starting in about 1993.” At the time, Metropolitan Charities was a very small operation, without even one full-time employee. The operating budget for that first year was just $42,000, and the agency operated out of a small room in King of Peace Metropolitan Community Church.

Utilizing her strong leadership skills, compassion and guidance over the years, Langlois has grown Metro Charities to become the largest HIV/AIDS service organizations and nationally known GBLT community centers, operating with an annual budget of over $2,500,000, 45 employees and offices in both St. Petersburg and Tampa. Metro Charities has evolved to become the known service leader in providing case management services, mental health counseling and substance abuse programs to people with HIV/AIDS.

Lorraine continuously leads Metropolitan Charities to success today, just as she did in the beginning. Her most recent leadership accomplishments at Metro Charities include the building/land purchase of the Metro Thrift Store located in downtown St Petersburg and successfully implementing the new GLBT Community Centers in St Pete and Tampa and continues to be an influential leader in our community.

Lorri L. Jean

L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center
CEO
Los Angeles, California

↓ show bio

Lorri L. Jean is nationally recognized as one of the most seasoned and effective leaders in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender ("LGBT") civil rights movement.  OUT Magazine has listed her as one of the 50 most powerful gay and lesbian people in the nation and Los Angeles Magazine named her as one of the 100 most influential people in Los Angeles. Jean currently serves as CEO of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center, the world's largest LGBT organization with more than 300 full time employees and 3,000 volunteers serving over a quarter million people each year.  The Center's annual budget revenues exceed $63 million.

Jean has been an activist on LGBT issues since 1979.  She served as the lead plaintiff in the successful landmark lawsuit against Georgetown University to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.  She also was the first openly gay or lesbian person ever to receive a top secret security clearance from the Central Intelligence Agency.  In 1989, with her appointment as Deputy Regional Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency ("FEMA"), she became the highest-ranking openly gay or lesbian person in the Federal government (a distinction she held until 1993 when President Clinton appointed Roberta Achtenberg).

Jean began her second tenure at the helm of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center in June of 2003, asked by the board of directors to return and lead the organization back to stability after a period of financial crisis. Since then she and her team have succeeded in dramatically expanding programs and increasing revenues from $31.5 million in FY 03 to more than $63 million in FY 12 and staff from 214 to 370 by the end of FY 12. A few highlights of the Center’s program successes since 2003 include cutting edge HIV/AIDS research leading to the approval of rapid HIV testing; becoming a Federally Qualified Health Center (Look Alike) and opening one of the nation’s first community-based transgender medical clinics; launching an International Leadership Development Program bringing emerging LGBT leaders from China to Los Angeles for a 4 – 6 week immersion training program; being joined by LifeWorks (a youth mentoring organization) and expanding programming for non-homeless LGBT youth including a new charter high school; securing the first ever grant from the Federal Administration on Aging for services to LGBT seniors; launching Rock for Equality leading to the 2010 introduction of a House bill to end discrimination against same-sex couples in social security benefits; securing the largest federal grant ever given to an LGBT organization ($13.3 million over 5 years) to design and implement a national demonstration project to improve the condition of LGBT youth in foster care.

Jean’s first tenure running the Center was from 1993 – 1999. During those 6 years she led the Center through a period of unprecedented expansion, dramatically increasing the number of clients and volunteers, the diversity and volume of services, the number of staff, and the size of the budget.  She also oversaw the purchase and renovation of a $7 million facility and built the nation's first $10 million LGBT organization endowment fund.

Jean served as executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, leading an organizational turnaround that brought the Task Force to financial solvency and increased the annual revenues to what was then an all-time high of $5 million.  Among other program accomplishments, she focused the organization's political efforts at the state and local level by building a field organizing department which orchestrated the defeat of nearly all anti-LGBT ballot measures in the 2001 and 2002 election cycles.

Prior to 1993, Jean spent ten years as an attorney with FEMA, including three years overseeing the disaster response and recovery operations of its largest region, with staff of 1,000 (including disaster assistance employees) and a budget of more than $1 billion.  Jean holds a Juris Doctorate degree from Georgetown University in Washington, DC, and a Bachelor of Science degree in communication from Arizona State University and is a member of bar in California and Washington, D.C.. She and her partner of 19 years, attorney Gina M. Calvelli, live in Hollywood and were legally married in September, 2008.

Long Island GLBT Community Center
CEO
Bay Shore, New York

David Kilmnick, PhD, MSW has more than 20 years of experience working on behalf of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) community to end homophobia and transphobia, provide a home and safe space for Long Island’s GLBT Community and to achieve equality. David founded Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth (LIGALY) in 1993 and has led the organization’s acquired and organic growth as its Chief Executive, making it a national model and one of the most well respected non-profit organizations on Long Island.

The most significant growth was in 2005 when David established the Long Island GLBT Services Network (The Network), an innovative business model for the nonprofit industry, to expand services for Long Island’s GLBT community throughout the lifespan. The Network included two new organizations – the Long Island GLBT Community Center (The Center) for adults and families, and Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders – Long Island (SAGE-LI) for seniors so that GLBT Long Islanders of all ages have access to much needed programs and services. The Network now also includes the East End Gay Organization (EEGO), as well as Equality Long Island, which serves as the region’s main GLBT political advocacy group. Together, these organizations form the 6th largest GLBT community center organization in the nation.

An indication of The Network’s growth and influence are it's two brick and motar centers in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. These GLBT community centers are Long Island's first and only, and a sign of the organizations mission being met and the massive support it has garnered across all sectors. Today, The Network’s organizations serve 15,000 annually and reach an additional 60,000 through education and outreach with 25 full-time staff members, two Community Centers located in Garden City and Bay Shore and an operating budget of over $2 million. With its presence felt all across Long Island, The Network serves as the regions main voice for the GLBT Community and using its extensive resources it also provides unparalleled access to tens of thousands in the Long Island market.

David has been widely recognized for his work on Long Island, throughout New York State and across the country. He has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the New York Civil Liberties Union Equality Award and the Lawrence Timpa Humanitarian Award for Professional Service from the Suffolk County Human Rights Commission. He is co-chair of the Board of Directors for Centerlink, the national organization that represents nearly 200 GLBT Centers, and in 2009 was appointed to the Suffolk County Hate Crimes Taskforce.
In addition to his innovative work in the GLBT community, David is a professor at several colleges and universities, including University of Maryland-University College in Nonprofit Management, Capella University in Public Administration and Nonprofit Management and at Walden University in the School of Public Policy and Administration. Kilmnick received his Ph.D. from the Graduate Center at the City University of New York in Social Welfare, where his dissertation focused on heterosexist attitudes and changes following contact with an openly gay instructor. David and his husband, Robert Vitelli live in Centereach with their two Yorkshire Terrier children, Sparky and Petey.

The Pipeline Project
Director & Developer
Brooklyn, NY

↓ show bio

Clarence Patton is currently the Program Director and Developer of The Pipeline Project. Additionally, he is the Principal of Pipeline Consulting, which provides recruitment, leadership and program development support to non‐profits.

The Pipeline Project, is a recruitment, retention, and leadership advancement effort with the stated goal of producing programs and engaging in activities that together will represent a long term effort to increase the number of people of color working within the nation’s LGBT rights, service and advocacy sector and ultimately increase the level of diversity in the leadership of our movement. During 2008, the Pipeline Project was in its planning phase, funded by the Arcus Foundation. The Pipeline Project began full formal operations in January 2009.

From November 2005 through January 2008, Mr. Patton was the Executive Director of both of the New York City Gay & Lesbian Anti‐Violence Project (the Anti‐Violence Project), and Acting Executive Director of the National Coalition of Anti‐Violence Programs (NCAVP). He was also Acting Executive Director of the Anti‐Violence Project for nine months prior to being selected as Executive Director.

In his first year as Executive Director Mr. Patton enhanced agency's financial performance and prospects in part by producing a $76,000 operating surplus after inheriting a $52,000 operating deficit and $397,000 negative fund balance. In his second year, he significantly reduced the organization's structural debt by 76% to $94,000 in part by generating a $232,000 operating surplus and initiating a campaign to secure $250,000 in new funding from donors and institutions over two years. Within the effort's first month, cash and commitments for $125,000 had been secured.

During his tenure, he also successfully leveraged $750,000 for LGBTQ domestic violence services and programming at the Anti‐Violence Project and 13 other agencies across New York State and also oversaw almost all steps of merger of the Anti‐Violence Project with its national coalition.

Before assuming these dual roles, Mr. Patton was Director of Community Organizing and Public Advocacy at the Anti‐Violence Project. In this role, he was responsible for creating the department and ultimately expanded staffing to five FTE, and acted as secondary and often primary spokesperson for organization to media and community.

He also managed and expanded numerous government and private foundation resources including writing and managing all solicitations to elected officials for member item funds and held creative oversight and managed distribution of an ongoing public service advertising campaign and coordinated all public relations and external communication efforts.

He created the first‐ever statewide LGBTQ Domestic Violence Network in New York and developed and implemented comprehensive strategies to improve agency outreach to, work with and staff recruitment in people of color and transgender communities.

Mr. Patton was also instrumental in developing and implementing a new agency focus on developing public policy initiative efforts, and oversaw, executed and/or initiated programming that included: significantly enhanced and improved volunteer recruitment, retention, and education initiatives; the creation of a new Youth Anti‐Violence Initiative; the development of Anti‐LGBT violence in the workplace trainings, curricula, presentations and employee protections analyses.

From August 1996 through December 1998 he was also spent nearly three years as the Anti‐Violence Project’s Director of Development. During that time he oversaw and/or executed all aspects of organization’s fundraising activities and supported the growth of the organization’s operating $850,000 to almost $1.2 million. Mr. Patton also created the organization's direct mail and membership program.

Before arriving at the Anti‐Violence Project, he was Program Coordinator at the Empire State Pride Agenda, New York State’s lesbian and gay lobbying group and political action committee.

As Program Coordinator, he was the organization’s primary contact for people of color communities in New York City and all community groups in Upstate New York, where he traveled extensively working on the Pride Agenda’s efforts to organize the state’s lesbian and gay community around political and legislative issues.

For three years, Mr. Patton was Chair of the Board of People of Color in Crisis (POCC), an advocacy and service agency in Brooklyn primarily serving men of African descent living with or at risk for HIV and AIDS.

At Cornell University where he studied Urban and Regional Studies, he was active both in community work in the City of Ithaca as well as the Cornell Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Coalition.  While at Cornell, he was also the head of Gays, Bisexuals and Lesbians of Color (GBLOC).  Mr. Patton resides in Brooklyn, New York.
