The Spudnik Press Cooperative Board of Directors is seeking new Board Members! We encourage members of our community to consider supporting our mission by joining our Board.
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 any challenges that arise during their tenure.
Priorities for the coming year focus on our current leadership transition and working closely with staff to ensure that the organization is accessible, diverse, inclusive, and equitable.
Board Members serve two-year terms and are eligible for reappointment for additional terms. Board meetings are typically held in the evening, every month, with additional meetings called as needed. Directors are expected to serve on at least one committee, meeting approximately once per month.
We have recently created dedicated seats for Spudnik members, without annual dues. These member seats are part of our commitment to ensure we are representing the needs of the community in our guidance and decisions. To be eligible for these seats, Spudnik members must have at least two years of membership with the organization, and these years do not need to be consecutive. Membership must be active at the time of application.
At this moment, we are accepting applications for general and member seats.
Please send your resume plus a letter of inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org. The board of directors will select new Board members to temporarily serve through August. These Board members will be eligible to be voted into the full two-year term by Spudnik membership in the Annual Member Meeting in August.
