The San Juan County Arts Council is seeking 4-5 new members for the Board of Directors to be elected at the annual membership meeting in November, 2012. There are openings for board members from Orcas and Lopez and possibly San Juan as the Board attempts to fill upcoming vacancies and balance membership among the islands.
The San Juan County Arts Council evolved in 2009 as a result of discussions to address the arts and further the potential of the artists in our county. Our Mission is to promote and integrate the artistic resources of the county for the creative economic development, education and overall well-being of the county communities. SJCAC has the potential to offer exciting and innovative benefits to all the creative arts and artists in the islands and seeks partnerships with existing arts organizations and businesses.
It is a non-profit organization which reflects all creative endeavors and it is expected that board members will enjoy helping to create and administer artistic projects, and/or have experience with general administration, art patronage, or non-profit fund raising challenges.
Meetings are monthly and this year the board met on 1st Thursdays. Since this is a county-wide council, the meetings have rotated among the islands with the times varying depending on ferry schedules. Regular attendance at board meetings is essential for the council to work effectively. The term of office is usually three years and previous board experience is a plus.
Vision: Where arts flourish, community prospers and lives are enriched.
