Seattle City of Literature

Seattle City of Literature is looking for new board members! Most important is a passion for books/writing and creative communities. We are also looking for candidates with legal, financial, and/or communications/PR experience, as well as connections to major regional employers; we also value connections to communities that have historically been marginalized by the culture of majority-white arts and cultural spaces/organizations.

The Seattle City of Literature board of directors is expected to:

  • Affirm the mission, vision and strategy of Seattle City of Literature, and when necessary and appropriate, suggest changes to enhance and support the essence of the organization.
  • Attend monthly board meetings.
  • Develop and approve the by-laws.
  • Take responsibility for the institutional and financial health of the organization.
  • Approve financial reports and budgets for the expenditure of funds.
  • Contribute to the organization's financial health by making an annual gift (either personal or recruited) that reflects a commitment to the on-going operations of the organization.
  • Propose board officers including president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer to be elected by full board.
  • Create and participate in committees focused on specific tasks such as programs, board development, financial management, and fundraising.
  • Help to host meetings of the board.

Terms, Policies, and Procedures:

Board terms last three years, and board members may serve consecutive terms.
