We're always seeking to collaborate with new energies and we invite new leadership to help us deliver our mandate. Every quarter we formally recruit and recognize those that lead the Tribe as our Directors at Large. This is our formal request to the community for those that wish to get involved, shape the Tribe, build capacity for our programs, and help keep our creative scene vibrant.
Applications are received here.
Those that are interested are encouraged to apply at which point a director will follow up with a phone call to learn more about you and your interests.
Following our phone interview, and if we feel like there's a mutual great fit, we'll forward you an official director orientation package for the Q3 Board Meeting on the closing date. So much gratitude to those that are interested - we will follow up with a thank you at that time as well.
All successful applicants will be invited to our Q3 Board Meeting (rescheduled) to listen in on our vision for the future. At the end of the meeting - meditate on it. If you would like to be nominated for a leadership role, you have until the 30th (shy of 1 week) to come forward and make an existing director aware of your intentions and what special projects or initiatives you'd like to lead. The existing executive directors will then take a vote to make it official.
General Wednesdays: Attend our weekly meetings and check-in via Slack to offer project updates. We aim for 1 monthly planning meeting early in the month, and three Wednesday work sessions. During our weekly check-in, we work with volunteers to action the tasks outlined in our minutes and Trello. We also check-in on our personal capacity. We all have big dreams and live big lives.
Slack + Trello: It's not for everyone - but we depend on it. Every Wednesday we review and discuss what tasks are in motion. We ask directors to update their tiles by 6 PM that day and add any key topics to our agenda.
Special Projects: Coordinate and collaborate with volunteers on at least 1 special project/deliverable for the Tribe's studio or productions each season.
Review meeting minutes: If you can't make a meeting, please get yourself up to date by skimming the mins and checking Trello (and the tile notes) for task updates.
Be an Ambassador: We ask that all our directors strive to be role models in their scene - demonstrate self-respect, practice harm reduction and intervention, be peer-oriented, mentor others, and approach projects with a supportive and community-minded attitude.
Don't Make Phil Sad: Loyalty and reliability is one of our most significant values and crucial for our initiatives - we ask directors to communicate clearly and deliver the projects they take charge of. We're all here to help each other with our goals.
As a note to candidates sitting in on the meeting please listen in, share your thoughts, and keep it confidential - respect means everything to us.
