BOARD ELECTIONS:

We have two positions on our Board of Directors to fill. We are looking for committed, compassionate, and progressive community members with fresh ideas to help govern effectively, advance the organization, meet the community’s needs, and have fun while doing it! 

The DCMF Board operates using a hybrid model consisting of operational, governance, advisory, and working styles. Currently, the DCMF Board meets bi-weekly for one hour, though we are examining the frequency of meetings. We are looking for individuals who have sufficient time to fulfill the requirements of their position, enthusiasm for the organization, and a willingness to ask questions. Other skills/experience/assets include human resources management, policy development, project management, strategic planning, grant writing, fundraising, communications, public relations, and risk management.

Joining the DCMF Board of Directors is a fantastic opportunity for people living in Dawson City to play a vital role in supporting staff, artists, and community members and to be a part of a progressive music organization.
