Board Member Positions

Director — Arizona Dance Coalition (Phoenix (but statewide organization))

November 25, 2020
Position Description:

The Arizona Dance Coalition is accepting nominations for board & officer positions. We are a membership-based, statewide 501(c)(3) all-volunteer organization. We may have as many as 20 board members and it would be good to have a stronger and larger representation from all regions/towns in Arizona as we move into a year where we will be evaluating the 'economic impact of dance arts in Arizona.'

All directors are required to participate in projects (in lieu of 'committees') in addition to attending scheduled meetings (virtually). You must have a professional 'office' with communication utilities in place, and you must check your emails daily and respond to board communications in a timely manner (within 24 hours). There are lots of opportunties statewide for connecting with our dance communities, and advocating for dance with city/town, regional, and state leaders (business and government). Participate in an art form that benefits not only the local and state economy, but each individual who experiences watching dance or dancing -- mind, body, energy and spirit!

NOMINATIONS (you may nominate yourself): Send headshot and bio to: Secretary@AzDanceCoalition.org. All directors must be, or must become, ADC members to be elected to the board. Elections will be held during the Annual Member Meeting in December. Select the dates/times that works best for you in this POLL: https://xoyondo.com/dp/nHLVUX7IMYOY4Cw

NO EXPERIENCE: While those with no previous 'board' experience are welcome, note that attending board training workshops will be required if you are elected. The most basic of board member responsibilities are to read and understand a tax return and spreadsheets.

YOU DON'T NEED TO BE A DANCER, but you need to be an ADVOCATE FOR DANCE - doesn't matter the style of dance. Being a dancer or having an affiliation with dance/dance orgs is not required -- only an interest in advocating for dance and time to do justice to your board and officer responsibilities.

EXPERIENCE DESIRED: We are in need of those with experience in professional organization, planning, media communication, research and grant writing, to work in this all-volunteer organization. Those with experience in accounting, WordPress, MailChimp, law, production/marketing, economics, are encouraged to apply. You need not be an 'expert' in these fields, but knowing the basics is sometimes all that is needed.

MISSION STATEMENT: The Arizona Dance Coalition (ADC) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) membership-based organization. We work to connect and support the statewide dance communities through our website content, communications, and sponsorship of educational dance conferences and master classes. Through our monthly publication, scholarships, and sponsorship of educational dance events, we inform, educate, and promote dance arts and their benefits to the general public.

To learn more about ADC, visit our website and take a tour of the 'pages' created to serve our dance communities in AZ and around the world. If you have questions, you may call Krystyna Parafinczuk, Treasurer, at 520-743-1349 (office).

Position Qualifications:

Please read the 'description' which lists desired experience. When submitting your bio/resumer, please list your board of directors experience and your contributions to projects, programs, and committees/board. 

How to Apply:

Please send your resume, short bio, and a headshot to: Secretary@AzDanceCoalition.org. If you have questions, please call Krystyna Parafinczuk, Treasurer, at 520-743-1349.
