*** Please note: due to the encouraging response to this opportunity, the closing date has been brought forward to July 31, 2018 ***
The Dunedin Music Society is positioned to grow beyond its initial launch, and our first dedicated Executive Director will directly influence important strategies for long-term sustainability by establishing and assuming administrative responsibilities of the organization and supporting the work of the Artistic Director. The position of Executive Director reports to the DMS Board of Directors.
Founded in late 2016 after an 18-month Steering Committee process, the DMS is committed to Connecting Local Communities with Live Music by creating and offering: large festivals and local concerts that feature the award-winning 36-year-old Dunedin Concert Band; educational opportunities for amateur and professional performers through the Pinellas Community Players; and a multitude of workshops and events.
This position is ideally suited for a leader with at least some association with not-for-profit management, who is looking for an opportunity to get connected with fans of live music and the community while utilizing the skills and experience garnered over an active working life and an interest in the arts. Although it is expected that the incumbent of this part-time volunteer position will, upon raising sufficient funds, assume compensated status, the DMS will accept applications from individuals who wish to volunteer for an interim period of 1-2 years until such point that the organization can sustain a longer-term paid appointment.
At this stage, you are invited to express your interest in the post by sending us your resume and a statement explaining why you want this position and how your strengths will benefit the DMS. Please submit no later than 12 noon Eastern Time on Tuesday, July 31, 2018
Thank you for helping to make the world a better place through live music.
Please read our vision, mission and values.
