SoCo Leadership Team Members Needed

Beginning 1/2023

What do SoCoCulture Leadership Team members do? They…

  • Provide SoCoCulture with your perspectives and opinions on the needs of SoCoCulture members
  • Provide ideas for professional development topics; “hot topics” in the cultural arena
  • Identify opportunities for member networking
  • Identify possible opportunities for members to share resources and insights
  • Assist in assessing the needs of members at our April leadership team meeting
  • Assist in planning the annual program of five professional development meetings at our October leadership team meeting
  • Take turns serving as “Master of Ceremonies” at each of the professional development meetings
  • Take on responsibilities as designated at the April and October meetings
  • We also need to have a couple of Leadership Team members take on the additional responsibility of Treasurer (writing a few checks throughout the year – but the busiest time is depositing membership dues in January/February); and of Note-taker for the two Leadership Team meetings and – if feasible – at the SoCo Membership Meetings.)


What kind of time commitment does this involve?

  • Attend two leadership planning meetings a year, in April and October. (2 hours each for a total of 4 hours annually).
  • Also attend a minimum of two SoCoCulture membership meetings a year. (2 hours each for a total of 4 hours).


How long of a commitment is this?

Team members will serve a two-year term with the opportunity to serve a second two-year term.

Makeup of Leadership Team

The Leadership Team should include a broad spectrum of members that reflects the organizations and entities SoCoCulture serves. The team members should represent, as much as possible, the demographics and geographic areas of South King County. We’d like to have representation from the following populations:

  • Audience/public
  • Arts Admin/LAA
  • Botanical
  • Dance
  • Education
  • Heritage
  • Historical Preservation
  • Individual artists
  • Literature
  • Marketing
  • Music
  • Theater
  • Visual Arts
