WEAD SEARCH FOR NEW BOARD MEMBERS
This spring the WEAD Board is looking for two new Directors, to join website and membership committees. If interested please send a self-nominating email with subject line (WEAD Board) to firstname.lastname@example.org with a letter stating why; three recommendations, and a resume, noting any relevant special skills.
The time commitment is two years minimum, with board meetings on the last Sunday of every other month, 3-5 pm pst. Committees meet more frequently. Each Board member selects at least one committee (or special project) to work with from the following options: Fundraising, Membership, Website + Outreach, Social Media, Exhibitions, Archiving, Nominations.
Board members are WEAD’s “worker bees”--dedicated, progressive women who keep the organization running. Vested in WEAD’s high value as a nonprofit service organization, Board committees collectively produce exhibits, outreach programs, membership events, and an acclaimed online art magazine.
You do not have to be an artist to be a Board Member. You do need to be able to work well collectively.
