A Call for Board Members

The Dance Victoria Society is seeking individuals to join our volunteer Board of Directors. We are looking for people with strong professional skills in one or more of the following areas: fundraising and special events, human resources, policy development, business and community contacts, technology, arts administration and/or finance and accounting (CPA with non-profit experience required). We are specifically looking for folks who have experience and interest in working with a group of volunteers to join our Fund Development Committee and assist with revenue expansion and special events. We are also looking for individuals with strong policy and governance experience to join our Governance and Planning Committee. Applicants should love the arts and dance and wish to join a Board charged with oversight for a dynamic and growing organization.

Dance Victoria’s Board of Directors is actively involved in governance, oversight and support for the administrative team. Directors are ambassadors in the community, opening doors and identifying opportunities as well as engaging in policy and strategic development.

Dance Victoria’s Board meets monthly, nine times a year (no meetings in December, July or August). Each Board member also serves on a committee. If you are invited to join us, your commitment would be about four hours of meetings in these months, plus some reading and preparation. Our responsibilities as a Board include periodic strategic planning, monitoring the society’s financial operations, succession planning and performance assessment for the Board and executive management. All Board members are asked to purchase tickets to Dance Victoria performances and to make an annual donation. Terms are two years in length, renewable up to three times (six years).

Dance Victoria strongly believes in upholding values that include those of diversity, equity and inclusion and we welcome applications from People of Colour, Indigenous Peoples and individuals with disabilities.
