Job Description:

We are looking for new Board Members who bring with them a passion for the arts, a dedication to seeing bold, new work thrive in Los Angeles and on tour, and a commitment to helping a reemerging organization grow into a successful institution.

The four main areas of concern for the Board are:

Fundraising: The Board is expected to develop and follow through with ideas on how to raise funds in alignment with the organization’s mission and objectives. 

Long-Term Development: The Board is held responsible to establish and maintain relationships with foundations and corporate sponsors. Additional board recruitment is also important for long-term development. 

Public Relations: The Board is in charge of fostering relationships with local, national and international dance presenters. A strong commitment to developing affiliations with the media is also essential for growth.

Governance: The Board acts as a legislative body to uphold policies in accordance with CGDT articles of incorporation and its bylaws.  ​​

Our main objective is to secure a base of financial support to fund administrative and artistic positions that allow us to sustain and expand the high-level of programming that our audiences expect of us. We must translate our success on stage into organizational growth so that we can retain the talent and enthusiasm of the artists we work with while constantly bringing new people into the fold to develop new and exciting work. Ultimately, we must find a physical home for our organization. Whether it’s creating a performance space from scratch, taking over an existing venue, or partnering with other members of the community, we must gear up for a capital campaign assuring the long-term future for Chard Gonzalez Dance Theatre and the creativity it fosters.


Experience: Individuals with board experience in small-sized arts organizations including start-ups are encouraged to apply. 

Participation: Board Members are asked to commit to monthly meetings in person (or virtually). Meetings are 2 hours and may include a social event with CGDT artists and/or collaborators.

Officers: We are seeking individuals with previous board leadership experience to fulfill legal requirements to reestablish our nonprofit status.

Contribution: Board members are invited to make a monetary contribution in any denomination that is personally meaningful and commensurate with their capacity to give.
