Board Member - Pax Christi Chorale

Posted On: 2015-01-07  
Application Deadline: 2015-03-01  
Time Commitment: 1-5 hr / month
Type of Organization: Music 

Pax Christi is governed by a small Board of Directors, currently eight persons some of whom are Choir members. 

The Board is responsible for governance, financial oversight and long range planning. The Board provides guidance, direction and support to the Artistic Director and a small artistic team as well as a General Manager responsible for administration, marketing and preparing grant applications.

The Board currently meets 4-5 times a year although that might become somewhat more frequent depending on the Board’s plans and objectives. Each Director is encouraged to become involved in one of the Board Standing Committees (Finance and Audit, Governance, Audience Development) or ad hoc working groups. 

Board duties include:

Approving strategic and financial plans and overseeing their implementation,
Approving a framework of policies, programs and processes 
Selection and direction of the Pax Christi artistic and administrative team
Approving major artistic plans such as programming, performance schedules, Choir touring, recording of performances etc.
Providing fund development and fundraising support
Assuring effective marketing programs.
Complying with relevant legislation and ethical standards.

The immediate priority is for someone with financial experience in the private, not for profit or government sectors. 

As a relatively small organization with limited, but growing staff resources, Pax Christi is currently using a Working Board model and directors are encouraged to contribute skills and volunteer time as they can. Our plan is to gradually expand the Board of Directors by 3 or 4 members.

People with marketing, business, governance or general leadership experience may find the opportunity of contributing to a fine performing arts organization of interest. 

About the Organization

Pax Christi Chorale is known for presenting dramatic masterworks with passion, conviction and heart. Our concerts introduce audiences to rarely-heard works that are a bit off the familiar path - music that is exciting and fresh but always couched in the ancient art of choral singing.
