Descrição

Slant’d is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit publishing house that celebrates the journey of self discovery through art and the written word. As a new nonprofit, we are looking to build out an experienced and heart-forward Board of Directors to help us secure the resources we need to achieve organizational stability and empower us to deliver on our mission to unlock creative expansion for AAPIs everywhere.


GENERAL BOARD RESPONSIBILITIES

The Board will provide mission-based leadership, boost our fundraising power, and ensure that Slant’d remains in good standing as a nonprofit (this is not a “working staff” role). 

While day-to-day operations are led by Slant’d’s Executive Director, the Board & Executive Director relationship is a partnership, and the appropriate involvement of the Board is both critical and expected:

  • Monitor the organization’s overall activities, fiscal health, and behavior
  • Ensure compliance with various nonprofit recordkeeping requirements
  • Actively participate in fundraising / development efforts
  • Manage the Executive Director
  • Serve as ambassadors for Slant’d in the community


BOARD CHAIR ROLE & RESPONSIBILITIES

The Board Chair is a Board Officer and they sit alongside the fellow Board Officers (Board Treasurer, Board Secretary) and our Executive Director to form our Executive Committee.

 

Board Leadership

The Board Chair is primarily responsible for setting a positive, energetic, and action-oriented tone to inspire the Board to work together in service of Slant’d’s mission.

  • Preside over Executive Committee meetings, Board meetings, and any special Board Meetings as necessary
  • Encourage input and discussion and facilitate decision-making among the Board
  • Work with the Director of People & Culture to foster Board camaraderie and mediate any conflicts or disputes between Board Members
  • If deemed necessary for Board effectiveness, create and manage Board Committees
  • Oversee the Board’s self-evaluation process, provide constructive feedback to individual Board Members as required, and implement recommendations for change


Nonprofit Oversight & Governance

The Board Chair will work closely with the Executive Director to ensure the successful execution of Slant’d’s goals.

  • Approve Slant’d’s annual budget, audit reports, and material business decisions
  • Draft and/or approve Board policies to guide and protect the nonprofit, Board, staff, and the community Slant’d aims to serve
  • Serve as a trusted advisor to the Executive Director for the development and implementation of Slant’d’s strategic plan
  • Support the Executive Director with troubleshooting potential issues and problems
  • Lead an annual performance review of the Executive Director


Board Recruitment & Succession Planning

The Founding Board is currently recruiting for a new Executive Committee, who will then recruit additional Board Members to round out the Board of Directors, on a timeline determined by the new Executive Committee.

  • Co-lead the recruitment and appointment of additional Board Members
  • Co-create a skills matrix to maintain a balanced and effective Board
  • Co-develop succession processes to recruit, select, and onboard new Board Members and ensure a smooth transition between Board terms
  • Lead the process for filling any unexpected vacancies on the Board

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Strong personal integrity and a passion for Slant’d’s mission and vision
  • At least 2 years of experience as a Board Director of another nonprofit or for-profit organization (ideally with experience as a Board Officer, but not necessary)
  • Extensive professional experience with significant leadership accomplishments
  • Exceptional oral and written communication skills
  • Able to run effective meetings and manage a diverse group of professionals
  • Able to facilitate decision-making and achieve consensus
  • Access to a network of high capacity donors or well-connected community contacts
  • Bonus: experience with another arts and culture organization

PHILANTHROPIC GIFT

Slant’d’s Board must consider Slant’d a philanthropic priority and make a meaningful annual financial gift that reflects that priority. In order to credibly solicit contributions from foundations, organizations, and individuals, each Board Member has a minimum annual give/get contribution of $3,000.


TERM OF OFFICE

3 years total: You will serve as the Board Chair for your first 2 years of service, then transition to a general Board Director for 1 year.


COMPENSATION

All Board Directors (including Board Officers) generously volunteer their time, experience, and connections in a fully-remote capacity without financial compensation. We provide the following as a token of our appreciation:

  • Copies of all printed publications to keep / gift to loved ones
  • Complimentary tickets to all Slant’d events (e.g., magazine launch parties, book tours)
  • Friends & family discount code for Slant’d events
  • Slant’d merch


TIME COMMITMENT

2-4 hours/month (Executive Committee meetings, quarterly Board meetings, and Board Chair responsibilities as outlined above)

Slant’d is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit publishing house that celebrates the journey of self discovery through art and the written word. As a new nonprofit, we are looking to build out an experienced and heart-forward Board of Directors to help us…

It’s deeply important to us at Slant’d that our work and spaces represent the full spectrum of voices across the AAPI community, as this is a space that intentionally centers AAPI talent. We’d especially love to work with folks who identify as queer, trans, non-binary, agender, disabled, or South Asian who are inspired by our mission and what we’re working on.
