Call for Nominations (Edmonton): The Edmonton Arts Council (EAC) is seeking nominations for Board Members

The Edmonton Arts Council (EAC) is seeking nominations for Board Members to begin terms in June 2021. There are seven (7) board positions to be filled, for a term of three (3) years.

The EAC is a not-for-profit, charitable organization that supports and promotes the arts community in Edmonton. The EAC works to increase the profile and involvement of arts and culture in all aspects of our community life through activities that are guided by  Connections & Exchanges: A Ten-Year Plan To Transform Arts and Heritage In Edmonton.

Potential Board Members should believe in EAC’s mission, and be prepared to commit their time and engagement in the governance work of the Board, including its committees.

The EAC, via its full range of activities, strives to reflect the demographic diversity of the City of Edmonton. Therefore, we encourage the nomination of individuals from a variety of artistic disciplines, cultural communities, Indigenous heritages, orientations, genders, ages, and abilities.

The deadline for nominations is April 9, 2021 at 11:59 PM MST.

Nomination Process:

Any full member (voting member) of the Edmonton Arts Council Society may nominate a full or associate member-in-good-standing (voting or non-voting member). All nominations must also be seconded by a full member. Members are unable to self-nominate to serve on the Board.

Interested candidates will be reviewed and possibly interviewed by the EAC’s Governance and Nominations Committee. The goal of the committee is to ensure that the Board’s membership is refreshed with appropriate skills and abilities, representing a variety of artistic and cultural points of view consistent with the ambitions, aims, and actions outlined in Connections & Exchanges. 

Following on recommendations from the Governance and Nominations committee, the Board may present a preferred slate of candidates to the membership, for election or appointment at the AGM on June 14, 2021.
