Artists, Community Leaders Wanted for Wheaton’s Arts & Entertainment Board

The Wheaton Arts & Entertainment District invites local artists and community leaders to join its new nonprofit’s board of directors.

A nominating committee was recently established to identify up to fifteen board members, which would “allow the Wheaton Arts and Entertainment Board to raise funds to support arts and entertainment efforts in the Wheaton area,” according to a press release from Montgomery County Councilmember Natali Fani-González, whose district includes Wheaton and Glenmont:

The first Board of Directors of the Wheaton Arts and Entertainment nonprofit organization will serve two-year terms and no more than three consecutive terms. Additionally, the terms of the board members are to be staggered. Initial board members may be elected for one full term of two years or one partial term of one year to affect the initial staggering of terms. The overall purpose of the governing Board of Directors is to ensure the organization’s activities conform to the purpose of its mission to nurture creativity, promote economic vitality, and celebrate Wheaton’s rich global heritage by supporting a wide array of arts activities. The board members will have fiduciary responsibility for the organization, will approve the budget of the organization, and will ensure the organization has the financial resources to carry out its mission by engaging in fundraising. The board will select and provide oversight to the Executive Director of the organization. The membership of the board shall include representation of the arts community.

To be eligible for the board of directors, candidates should meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Experience in nonprofit administration
  • Familiarity with the greater Wheaton community
  • Being an artist or a representative of an arts organization
  • Having significant influence within the art community

Applications are due by 5 p.m. on June 30 and can be submitted online.
