ARC seeking a Treasurer to serve as new member of the Board

May 13, 2021 | by Julian Baet

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's our vision to bring together all people to build a healthy community.

ARC is seeking a new member of the Board to join the Executive Team as Treasurer. Treasurers are responsible for ensuring their fellow board members are seeing good, clear data to help them make informed decisions for the organization. The Treasurer will also support and guide the strategic work of the Chief Financial Officer and lead the 3-member Finance Committee. A background in finance is highly desired. Board commitment is for three years, with an option to serve a second 3-year term.

If you’re interested in applying, have questions, or would like additional information about this volunteer opportunity, please contact Sonia Doughty at [email protected] or 206.465.2580.
