Board Service and Committees - Creative Airdrie Society: ARTember Director

About Us:

The Creative Airdrie Society (CAS) was formed in September of 2010 by business leaders and artists.  Our mission is to cultivate a creative life in Airdrie and we do this by acting as the bridge between the community, artists and policy makers.  We want to bring the world to Airdrie and Airdrie to the world.  We meet once a month and have several events and programs that are volunteer run.  We are the organization responsible for putting on ARTember, the Airdrie Mayor’s Night of the Arts Awards and we are looking to launch a new Creative Congress this year.  We have several new director and committee positions available and would like to see them filled by community members that are passionate about their city.  We have multiple roles and positions with small scopes of work that are more easily managed by volunteers.  It doesn’t take a lot of time to make a big impact in our community and we would love to hear from anyone that is interested in either short term or long term projects.  We can best be reached at:

Position: ARTember Director

This is the flagship event for Creative Airdrie.  It is a month long, city wide celebration of Arts & Culture for our city.  CAS’s current role is as a facilitator and promoter for ARTember, with one signature event put on by Creative Airdrie.  All other programs and events are planned and executed by various other arts groups including the Airdrie Public Library, the ARTS society, ARFPA, SLAM, Torchlight Theatre, Nosecreek Players, Bert Church Theatre, etc.  The director would be responsible for coordinating/documenting events in a central calendar, updating the ARTember website, creating a Social Media strategy for promotion and dealing with Media requests and questions.  The Signature event will be decided upon by the board and an additional ad hoc committee may be struck to ensure the completion of CAS’s ARTember contribution.  Skills:  Event planning, Communications, and Marketing.
