The Associated Recreation Council is looking for people to join our board of directors! We have four board seats open for 2023. We are especially seeking people with legal and financial expertise, experience with Family/Youth issues, Tech Professional, and Fundraising, but enthusiastically welcome anyone, with any background, who is passionate about our mission and work.
Associated Recreation Council (ARC) has been the 501(c)(3) nonprofit partner of Seattle Parks and Recreation for over 45 years. Our mission is to inspire engagement and participation in equitable, dynamic, culturally relevant, and responsive recreation and lifelong learning programs. It is our vision to bring together all people to build a healthy community.
Board members are committed volunteers who share a passion for the Associated Recreation Councils mission and strategic priorities. We want our board members to enjoy volunteering and feel valued for their commitment. We aspire to model a collaborative and transparent culture that encourages growth and ongoing learning opportunities. We strive to plan meetings and events that are heart-felt, meaningful, and make effective use of your time and expertise.
We are committed to having a diverse community of voices supporting our organization. Even if you do not have prior nonprofit experience, our board engages in on-going group learning at our board meetings. There are other opportunities to get involved as a volunteer if board service isn’t quite the right fit for you now!
We believe strongly in transparency and are happy to field any questions and provide documentation in regards to our financial and operational health.
