The Spudnik Press Cooperative Board of Directors is growing and evolving! We encourage members of our community to consider supporting our mission by joining our board of directors.
The Spudnik Press Board of Directors is a team of volunteers working behind the scenes to ensure our organization is resilient, mission-driven, and advocating day-in-day-out for artists and the arts. Board members provide long-range leadership, governance and oversight for the organization. Members of our board work collaboratively with each other, the Executive Director, and the staff of Spudnik Press to support the mission of our organization and the challenges arise during their tenure.
Priorities for the coming year focus on adapting our studio to accommodate capacity limitations and working closely with staff to ensure that the organization is accessible, diverse, inclusive, and equitable.
Board Members serve two-year terms (September – August) and are eligible for reappointment for additional terms. Board meetings are held Wednesday evenings every other month. Directors are expected to serve on at least one committee, meeting approximately once per month.
