What does being a Board Member involve?
Artist Run Initiatives are about people, about who is prepared to do what. We are not in a place where there’s a major arts institution pouring out energetic young artists to support an initiative like this. But we’ve had terrific public support in the past and we’re look forward to that continuing. Artist-run spaces do come and go, but I don’t think this one should [go], because it contributes so significantly to the cultural life of Alice Springs.
– Pam Lofts, artist and founding member
OBLIGATIONS OF A WATCH THIS SPACE BOARD MEMBER
If you are interested in joining our Board, these are some responsibilities we expect of you:
As stated in the WTS Constitution, Board Members must be Financial Members of the organisation (membership is $35 for one year – see membership form for details).
Be aware of current and upcoming WTS events and projects. This is not only for your own knowledge, but so you can share with others what is happening at the space.
WTS Board Members should see themselves as ambassadors for the space. Always advocate for and be supportive of the organisation to members of the community.
It is an important requirement that Board Members are professional during their involvement with WTS. This includes, but is not limited to, reading relevant documents prior to meetings if required, punctuality, commitment to tasks, as well as the following expectations…
Always let the Coordinator know if you can or can not attend a meeting.
REGULAR MEETING ATTENDANCE
The WTS Constitution states that a member can be suspended or expelled if absent from more than 3 consecutive committee meetings.
