Nominations for Common Field's Board of Directors are Now Open

In December, 2018 Common Field initiated an open nomination process for its Board of Directors. We fielded names of candidates through January 25, 2019 and anticipate inviting new members by the end of February, 2019. In an effort to remain open and responsive to our field, we will keep this form open throughout the year. Our next review of nominees will likely be in the summer of 2019. For questions about this process, please contact Nat May, Board Member.


Common Field's inaugural call for nominations for its Board of Directors is now open! The Board is a group of peers in the field of arts organizing who govern Common Field and provide vision, strategy, and financial oversight. This working group of members spends an average of five hours per month on team (committee) and Board work. As a still-emerging organization, the Common Field Board develops governance structures and continues to evolve to serve the mission of the organization.

The Common Field board aspires to include a diverse group of members of our field, representing multiple geographies, races and cultures, types of arts organizing practices, experience in the field, and skills and knowledge.

Nominate yourself or a colleague to be considered for service beginning at our convening in Philadelphia in April of 2019.

Board Members are expected to:

- Serve up to two two-year terms
- Participate in two in-person Board meetings and three online Board meetings per year
- Serve on at least one team and ad-hoc teams as needed
- Become a member of the Common Field Network
- Attend Common Field's Annual Convening (2019 Philadelphia Convening, April 24- 28, 2019)

To nominate yourself or a colleague, please review these documents and complete the Board Nomination google form by Friday, January 25, 2019.
