Applications open for Arts OutWest Board

Filed : Arts and funding opportunities, Featured, Our Projects: .

Arts OutWest seeks applications from skilled people interested in becoming our board members. Applications close Friday 3 May 2019.

Arts OutWest Inc (AOW) is a not-for-profit incorporated association and the board positions are voluntary, unpaid positions with a two-year term.

Three positions are open.

We are looking for some specific skills as well as ensuring that the board has diversity across gender, location, age and cultural background.  Applicants must be based in the Arts OutWest region.

Maybe you have skills in one or more of these areas; accounting, finance, law, marketing, human resources, arts industry knowledge, management (CEO or similar) experience, strategy development, experience as an arts practitioner, experience as an arts manager, fundraising, community work, Aboriginal cultural awareness or local government knowledge.

The board (or technically, committee of management) is responsible for overseeing the governance of the organisation and makes decisions about the strategic direction and ways of achieving the best outcomes for arts in the region. The Board meets four times a year in February, May, August and November, currently on the second Tuesday of the month at 5.00pm; twice in Bathurst and twice in Orange.  There is also an Annual General Meeting, usually held on a weekend in May each year.

The skills based board model established in 2018 involves a two-tier structure consisting of a board and an advisory council. This call for board member applicants will complete the process of moving to a skills-based board which commenced in 2018.

Applications for board membership open Monday 10 March and must be received by Friday 3 May 2019.
