Coordinator, Quadra Cultural Committee

Job Description
This is a VOLUNTEER POSITION with organizational flexibility. Planning for each season begins a year in advance, with certain months (May, June, Sept.) requiring more time. There are months when little is required. This position will require a transitional year, and the new coordinator will be well supported while learning the job.

Job Responsibilities fall into three areas:
1. Financial
With the help of the treasurer, the coordinator oversees an annual budget of approximately $20 000 and supervises the preparation of federal and provincial grant applications and local fundraising activities. For grant purposes, close attention must be paid to revenues and expenditures.

2. Artistic
The coordinator, with advice from committee members, gathers information and makes decisions for a 5 – 6 performance concert series each year. The coordinator negotiates contracts with artists or agents, signing and keeping track of them.

3. Volunteer Supervision and Recruitment
There is a very able volunteer committee in place, so at present, little is required.
The coordinator oversees the organization of each concert, which involves publicity, Community Centre rental, tech organization, accommodation and hospitality for artists, house set-up, and fulfilling the riders of the contracts. In the main, this work is done by experienced volunteers.

If you are a community member with a strong interest in and knowledge of the performing arts, good organizational and writing skills, good interpersonal skills, and time on your hands, you would find this a very rewarding position.
