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: finance and accounting (CPA required), human resources, policy development, business and community contacts, arts administration, fundraising. We are specifically looking for folks to join our Finance Committee, Governance and Policy Committee, an individual with strong administrative and organizational skills to serve as our Board Secretary and a CPA with non-profit experience to serve as our Board Treasurer. 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, and succession planning and performance assessment for the Board and executive management.

Dance Victoria believes strongly 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.
