Application deadline set for new board of director term –  Every year, Olympia Film Society seeks nominations and applications for members interested in serving two-year terms on the board of directors. Terms begin in the Fall.  There are eight board of director positions open this year though there will be some incumbents seeking new two-year terms.  If there are more than eight eligible applications for the board, OFS members will be asked to vote on the board applicants they prefer. Applications available below or in the lobby of the Capitol Theater.  Board applications are due by July 31.

Interested in becoming an OFS Board Member? It is an exciting time to be a Board member of the Film Society. As owners of the Capitol Theater, we have a variety of important projects and initiatives that touch all aspects of the organization – programming, personnel, community outreach, fundraising, and finance. At this important moment in our organizational history, we can use your help to build our organizational capacity and tackle these exciting projects. Daily operations at OFS are shared among a talented group of 8 paid staff, and a committed team of 200+ volunteers, overseen by a Board of Directors. Not only will you feel great about contributing to the success of OFS, but you will also have the opportunity to join an interesting and creative community of art enthusiasts.

If you are interested in joining this fine group of community members who help bring great arts programming to Olympia please review the following information:

What are the qualifications and expectations? The Board seeks individuals with a background or experience in fundraising, managing budgets, community outreach, human resource management, and/or marketing.  An OFS Board of Director serves two-year terms. There are 15 positions available on the Board. Elections are held annually and vacancies between elections can be filled by Board appointment.
