Had a little bit of a lull there, but now we’re back in business!

Director & CEO, Canada Council for the Arts

The Canada Council for the Arts is a federal Crown corporation created by an Act of Parliament in 1957 “to foster and promote the study and enjoyment of, and the production of works in, the arts.” To fulfill this mandate, the Council offers a broad range of grants and services to professional Canadian artists and arts organizations in dance, music, theatre, visual arts, writing and publishing, media arts and integrated arts.  It also promotes public awareness of the arts through its communications, research and arts promotion activities.  The Canada Council Art Bank, the Killam Program of scholarly awards, and the Canadian Commission for UNESCO are administered through the Council.

The Council is looking for a visionary leader who can guide and mobilize the organization to successfully implement the objectives laid out in its 2011-2016 Strengthening Connections Strategic Plan. With an exceptional ability for cooperating creatively and effectively with a highly committed Board of Directors in accomplishing the mission of the organization, the selected candidate should have an enviable reputation in the Canadian cultural community, based on the quality of past achievements and superior professional integrity.

No deadline listed. Salary is $210,600 to $247,700 (in Canadian dollars, of course). The Council is also looking for a Secretary-General for the Canadian Commission for UNESCO.

Program Associate and Software Developer, Fractured Atlas

Fractured Atlas is seeking a full-time Program Associate. This position will provide administrative support for our core member programs and services. It is an entry-level position that involves a great deal of front-line customer service. We have over 30,000 artists in our membership nationwide who come to us daily for guidance, assistance and support.

Deadline: January 15 for the Program Associate position and none listed for the Software Developer. The PA position pays $40k.

Executive Director, Communications Network

Over the past two years, the Communications Network Board – composed of communications leaders from the nation’s top foundations – developed and approved a strategic plan designed to take the Network to the next level.  Building on a string of successful years in membership, fundraising and programming, the Network seeks to maintain its core strength among its foundation-based membership while gradually expanding to draw in leading nonprofit communication professionals.  We envision an organization that becomes a hub of excellence in the realm of nonprofit communications – an important constituency not presently served by existing networks – and that draws on the experience and commitment of communications professionals working not only for foundations, but for other leading nonprofits.

No deadline. An interesting setup where the ED works from anywhere with the support of an association management firm in Naperville, IL.
