Volunteers Wanted – Co-Retail Community Board Members – Seeking board members for the new non-profit South Orange Community Co-retail Board of Directors.
Last month, South Orange’s Board of Directors approved the creation of a new non-profit organization based in South Orange. This organization will support local and neighboring community creators, artists, and small businesses by providing an experiential co-retail, incubation, and community-building space located at 59 South Orange Avenue, South Orange, NJ, as part of of the Taylor Vose development project.
We are looking for interested community members to apply to join the organization’s founding board of directors. We welcome diversity and encourage applications from candidates from all backgrounds.
We are particularly interested in candidates who are local residents of South Orange and/or who have substantial experience in one of the following areas:
Not-for-profit management and/or operations
Finance and accounting
Communications and branding, including via social media
Prior service as a volunteer or board member of a non-profit organization
Board members will support the work of this new non-profit organization, provide leadership and governance, and act as ambassadors to the community. Day-to-day operations will be directed by a management entity, which will be hired to construct, staff and manage the physical space. Board members will partner with the management entity to manage and administer the space, its programming, and community partnerships, and their appropriate participation is both essential and expected.
The members of the board of directors sit for at least three years and will be eligible for re-election. Service on this board is voluntary and unpaid.
To apply, please send your expression of interest and a resume to [email protected] by September 23, 2022 with “Community Co-retail Nonprofit Board” in the subject line.
