Call for nominations – Board of directors of the RQD
Sitting on the board of directors of the Regroupement québécois de la danse (RQD) is a unique opportunity to become involved on behalf of your community, to better understand the leading issues in professional dance, and to help find common solutions for the advancement of the discipline. Submit your candidacy so that the RQD can continue to grow in all its richness and diversity.
Positions up for election
The board of directors (BD) is made up of 10 elected members and three co-opted members. Five (5) positions are up for election at the next Annual General Meeting (AGM):
- Two (2) in the corporate members group
- Three (3) in the individual members group
The AGM will also be an opportunity to elect a new president of the RQD from among the 10 members of the BD, either newly elected or already serving their term.
As much as possible, the RQD board of directors aims to incorporate complementary fields of expertise, provide adequate representation across various areas of practice and organizational forms, and ensure artistic, cultural, territorial and generational diversity. The RQD is searching for people with proven competencies in strategic governance and management in order to support its efforts to ensure the sector’s recovery.
Tangible involvement in the service of the community
The function of director requires strong values of involvement, team spirit and integrity. It also requires a significant time investment. In concrete terms, the BD holds an average of eight three-hour meetings annually, during the week (morning or afternoon), as well as a one-day retreat. Members of the RQD board of directors are also invited to sit on working committees, based on their interests, expertise and availability.
