What Fireside looks for in a candidate:

Applications to Fireside are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Our committee meets weekly (sometimes even more frequently) to review applications. We strive to build a community that is diverse and inclusive.

You do not need to know a previous Fireside attendee to be eligible to attend but we do have a preference to those referred by past Fireside attendees.
