We are looking for a limited number of participants to add to the Firefly Arts Collective Board of Directors to fill positions vacated in the past year. The Board is responsible for the financial and legal obligations of Firefly Arts Collective Inc. The Board is also responsible for planning the long term development and growth of the organization. Board members are expected to physically attend monthly meetings in the Boston area and contribute several hours of work per week on a year-round basis.
To learn more about the specific responsibilities of Firefly Board Members, please review our Bylaws.
If you have interest in contributing to Firefly at this organizational level, please fill out this form: Application for Board Membership
After you fill out the form we will reply within a week to confirm receipt and may get back to you with some follow-up questions. We may invite you to attend a meeting to chat more about your responses and let you learn more about how we operate. Once we’ve had a chance to review all responses the Board will discuss and decide if we wish to add additional members.
The Firefly Board of Directors is relatively small to keep discussion and consensus-based decision making practical. Any candidates who we are unable to invite to join the Board will be kept on file to consider as future vacancies arise, and we will also send out this request for expression of interest on a yearly basis.
We’re very excited to get new participants involved with the Firefly Board. Beyond the yearly Firefly camping event we are working on expanding the year-round activities of Firefly Arts Collective. Firefly continues to collaborate with Somerville Open Studios and Figment Boston to bring more community art to our cities, and we are exploring other opportunities to engage more deeply with our larger home communities. We look forward to hearing from motivated participants with the time and energy to help expand and organize our community!
