Call for a Board Secretary
Eyelevel Artist Run Centre is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for a new Secretary. The Secretary is one of the four executive positions on our Board of Directors (along with the Co-Chairs and Treasurer) and is responsible for ensuring that all records and documents for Eyelevel’s board are properly kept. If you’re a keener who loves organizing and note-taking (bonus if you’ve written policies or have HR experience) this could be the role for you!
The key responsibilities of this position are:
Writing and distributing the agenda for each board meeting 1 week in advance, and for our Annual General Meeting at least 10 days in advance
Taking minutes at each board meeting and all general meetings
Working with Eyelevel’s Artistic Director to ensure that board files are up to date and organized (all files are stored on Google Drive)
Working with the Artistic Director to ensure that annual Joint Stocks filings are completed
Eyelevel is in the process of developing new organizational policies (focusing on human resources and equity policies) as well as a new strategic plan. We welcome and encourage EOIs from folks with governance knowledge, experience writing policies or any kind of HR experience (through work, volunteering, etc).
If you are interested in joining our board and becoming our new secretary, please send a brief Expression of Interest outlining your experience and why you would like to be a part of Eyelevel’s board to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sally Wolchyn-Raab, the Artistic Director is happy to answer questions or forward queries to our board members. You can contact her at email@example.com or call or text Eyelevel’s cell phone at 902-425-6412
About the Board:
Eyelevel’s Board of Directors is made up of local artists, arts-workers and community members who work in collaboration to ensure that Eyelevel is thoughtfully and responsibly governed. Eyelevel’s board is semi-working: each board member is expected to join at least one of Eyelevel’s committees (Finance, HR, Governance, Programming, Engagement) where they can make meaningful contributions to Eyelevel’s policies, best practices, financial decisions, program development and fundraising/outreach initiatives. The board meets for a 2-hour meeting once a month, and committees meet on a quarterly or monthly basis. Board members should expect to contribute 10 hours per month to Eyelevel, including reading and responding to emails and attending meetings.
Eyelevel is a 45-year old artist-run centre that has been lovingly run and nurtured over the years by it’s board, committees, volunteers and staff. Eyelevel currently has one full-time permanent staff member (the Artistic Director) and supplements summer programming and large-scale projects with contract staff when possible.
