Theatre Puget Sound is seeking candidates to serve on our new Member Advisory Council (MAC).
WHAT IS THE MAC?
The MAC is a standing assembly of committed volunteers designated to represent and empower the TPS membership in the organization’s governance, planning, and program evaluation. The intent is that council members represent a variety of specialties and personal backgrounds, both serving the members of TPS as a whole and acting as an advocate for their designated area of representation. One TPS board member will stand on the council to ensure the MAC has access to the board and vice versa. In addition, one additional MAC member may be elected to sit on the board for further transparency.
The MAC is comprised of up to 12 members who serve 1 year terms. Individuals may serve for a maximum of 3 consecutive terms. An applicant must be a current TPS member in good standing when applying and throughout the service term. Applicants should also demonstrate leadership qualities, enthusiasm for the TPS mission, knowledge and skills developed from experience or training in one or more primary constituency groups within the TPS Membership.
WHO SITS ON THE MAC?
TPS seeks candidates who demonstrate the following abilities and characteristics: credibility with professional local or national arts organizations in good standing; reliability, sound judgment, good humor, flexibility and creativity; ability to work effectively and cooperatively with other council members, TPS staff, community individuals, and groups with diverse backgrounds and philosophies; and ability to take a multi-cultural perspective and to support strategies that enhance a diverse, sustainable arts community in Seattle.
Prospective candidates should demonstrate a commitment and willingness to attend a minimum of 2 meetings a year, or as needed. Members should also demonstrate willingness to represent the Council at community functions and commitment to the Council’s express core purpose and values. We anticipate organization of the council will be largely shaped by the members themselves.
