Who We Are
LondonFuse New Media Collective (LondonFuse) is a registered not-for-profit organization that serves as a treasure map for London, with a focus on documenting and spreading the word about London’s unique culture and arts scene.
We are made up of a Board of Directors and a group of fierce volunteers. LondonFuse has seen many contributing members come and go… and many times come back again. All of our projects and events are truly a community endeavour, which makes what we do so exciting and rewarding.
What LondonFuse Does
LondonFuse produces written and visual content that has three main mediums intended to promote community engagement:
- LondonFuse.ca is our online publication.
- Our Contributor Program fuels our online publication and provides an outlet and experience for community members.
- LondonFuse Directory highlights the must-see places to eat, shop, or visit in London.
We’re currently seeking an enthusiastic Marketing Director to join our Board for a two-year term, beginning in January 2021.
The LondonFuse Board of Directors is a hands-on, working board, overseeing the fiscal responsibility and strategic vision of the organization. The commitment of a LondonFuse Board member is typically 8-10 hours per month, including two hours in preparation for meetings, with one mandatory two hour Board Meeting each month (except for August and December) and voluntary committee meetings. At this time, due to COVID-19 restrictions, our meetings are held virtually. When it is safe to gather, they are held at Innovation Works in downtown London.
All are welcome to indicate their interest or nominate others they feel might be appropriate. If you or your nominee has any experience in fundraising, that would be an added bonus.
