CARFAC is guided by an active board of directors, elected by our members. Board members work together to oversee the strategic direction of the organization and to contribute to projects that support visual artists and our sector.
CARFAC is committed to fairness, equity, and diversity in all employment opportunities, and we provide a supportive work environment for all staff. We strongly encourage applications from candidates who are members of marginalized and/or under-served/underrepresented communities, especially individuals who identify with: First Nations, Inuit or Métis, or people of colour; diverse gender and sexual identities (including LGBTQ2+); people living with dis/ability, etc.
All Directors are elected for a term of two years and may be re-elected to serve a maximum of three consecutive terms. Directors will be elected or re-elected to a position by our members at our AGM.
Responsibilities and Duties of CARFAC Board Members
Service as a member of CARFAC’s Board of Directors requires time, dedication and commitment to the aims and purpose of CARFAC. For CARFAC to fulfill its unique role and reflect the views of its membership, Board members must participate fully in their roles and functions. The Directors of CARFAC National are responsible for setting goals, defining organizational policies and priorities, and approving plans to achieve our goals.
Professional visual artists who are social justice-minded and have demonstrated their commitment to community organizing are highly desirable candidates. Experience working with organizational finances, or legal or labour matters concerning artists, are considered assets.
CARFAC board members are required to act in good faith and in the best interests of CARFAC National, to formally declare any real or apparent conflicts of interest, and to respect the confidentiality of sensitive information. Part of the due diligence required of Directors is attending board meetings and keeping yourself informed about the affairs of CARFAC by reading materials prepared for the meetings, newsletters, and e-mail bulletins. The board typically meets four times yearly, with additional committee meetings, as required.
Nominations to the board are currently closed. If you would like to be considered for future opportunities, please send your expression of interest to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
