Join the Board

Are you interested in joining the Board of Wangaratta Festival of Jazz Inc?

The Board is the peak governance body of the Festival and is primarily focussed on strategy and policy rather than operations and implementation. This skills based, volunteer board is open to anybody with the time, passion and skill set we are looking for.

Skills we seek

While the Board has a strategic function, each member is expected to engage in a portfolio area.  We are looking for Board members who have an appreciation of jazz and / or blues and can bring skills and experience in the following areas to the Board:

  • Fundraising
  • Financial management and budgeting
  • Volunteer development
  • Marketing support
  • Community engagement
  • Music festival production

Directors can expect to commit to an average of 1-2 hours per week, plus a monthly board meeting for 2.5 hours plus travel time.

Directors appointed to sub-committees will have an additional commitment, to be agreed between members of that sub-committee, to meet its objectives.

One, two and three year terms available.

Contact Miriam Zolin for more details on 0407 664 202

Next AGM

Our next Annual General Meeting is expected to occur on Monday 4 March. Exact date, time and location will be advertised in early February.
