Join the LondonFuse Board of Directors!
LondonFuse is currently seeking community-minded individuals to volunteer and join our Board for a two year term. Application deadline: July 20, 2018.
WHO WE ARE
LondonFuse New Media Collective (LondonFuse) is a registered not-for-profit organization that promotes art, lifestyle and culture in London, Ontario and beyond. We create experiences and content by documenting events, artists, history, and business while advocating for community by providing a fun and inclusive platform for readers like you.
We are made up of a collaborative team of staff members, board of directors, co-op students, and 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
Our content is created by a team of volunteers from London who want to document and spread the word about London’s unique culture and arts scene.
LondonFuse has two main mediums intended to promote community engagement:
1. Our publications: LondonFuse.ca is our online publication and Short Fuse is our print publication.
2. Our Contributor Program fuels our publications and provides experience for emerging talents and allows volunteer contributors to hone their skills of content creation.
We are always looking for ways to grow our content and reach more groups that are pushing the boundaries of what’s exciting, what events are happening and the latest new thing that we can become obsessed with.
We’re currently seeking community-minded individuals to join our Board for a two year term.
All Londoners 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.
The LondonFuse Board of Directors is a working board, overseeing the fiscal responsibility and strategic vision of the organization. Our vision is a sustainable LondonFuse that enables our stakeholders to have an impact on our community and our core team values are Inspiration, Transparency, and Positivity.
The commitment of a LondonFuse Board member is typically 8-10 hours per month, including two hours preparation for meetings, with one mandatory Board Meeting each month (except for August and December) and voluntary committee meetings.
