Open Call for Persephone Board Members
Persephone Theatre, a leading theatrical institution in the City of Saskatoon, is seeking experienced, enthusiastic, resourceful, and engaged Board Members.
Persephone sits amidst an increasingly vibrant city centre, where its busy mainstage, studio stage, and rehearsal halls; its theatre school and youth programming; and the many events held in its venue, have established Persephone Theatre as a cultural hub.
The volunteer Board of Directors provides strategic leadership, governance, establishes policy, oversees the operations and financial performance of Persephone Theatre, and assesses the Board’s own effectiveness. Our Board Members may serve on several committees, including:
- Nominations & Governance
- Human Resources
Persephone Theatre is looking for individuals with the following interests and skill sets:
- Finance & Accounting (CPA)
- Fundraising and Development
- Information Technology
- Fine or Performing Arts
Persephone Theatre encourages its Board Members to engage in all areas of the not-for-profit organization and Board Members must maintain membership in Persephone Theatre through the annual purchase of a subscription or donation of at least $150.
Directors are expected to
- prepare for and attend approximately seven board meetings per year,
- serve on at least one committee and participate actively in the work of the committee and its meetings,
- include Persephone as a top three personal philanthropic priority,
- be an activist for Persephone Theatre.
To apply, please submit:
- an expression of your interest, and
- a description of your professional experience which may be in the form of a CV or resume.
to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 20, 2020. Written, audio, or video submissions will all be accepted. Short-listed applicants will be asked for references.
We believe that an equitable, diverse, inclusive, and anti-oppressive space is fundamental to the innovation and creativity that is required for Persephone Theatre to thrive. As such, we would especially encourage applications from Indigenous people, people with disabilities, and visible minorities for the role of director; applicants are encouraged to self-identify in their expression of interest. Persephone Theatre relies on section 48 of the Saskatchewan Human Rights code to give preference to Indigenous people, people with disabilities, and visible minorities.
