Board of Directors & Committees

VMAA SEEKING BOARD NOMINATIONS

We are looking to fill the positions of Secretary and Treasurer on our board. 

Our board of directors meets monthly from September through May, and those considering serving on our board should feel able to attend at least five out of these eight meetings. Whether or not you have experience in serving on a nonprofit board, we're keen to meet you and promise to support you.

Some board members sit on other committees or working groups, such as for exhibitions, finance, competitions, website or member engagement. We invite you to bring your expertise or your enthusiasm – or both!

Please contact president@vancouvermetalarts.com for more details.
