We’re Looking for New Board Members!

The next few years promise to be exciting for Oakland Art Murmur. We are looking for enterprising board members to play a central role in implementing the mission, as we look to the future.

The primary responsibility of board directors is to steward the organization’s strategic direction, resources, and policies in accordance with our mission and values. A big part of this work involves active engagement on one of our board committees such as Fundraising, Programming, Community Outreach or Strategic Planning. The primary day-to-day operations are delegated and overseen by the board of directors, and supported by the volunteer staff.

As you consider this opportunity, you will be provided the board director roles and responsibilities. We are a governing board and expect the board to be active and dynamic. You can apply here and if you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected] for more information.
