Expressions of Interest sought for Nelson Festivals Trust Board Chair
24 October 2017

Nelson City Council is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified individuals for the position of Chair for the Nelson Festivals Trust, an independent Charitable Trust that is being established to be primarily responsible for the governance and operations of the Nelson Arts Festival.

In this role, candidates will need experience as a Board Chair and will bring a strong and collaborative leadership style. We are looking for candidates with the following experience and capabilities:

• A strong passion for the arts, events, and community
• The ability to provide strategic leadership
• A successful background in business or events management
• Strong economic and financial skills
• Strong influencing skills
• Objectivity in decision making

The Trust is being established to shadow the 2018 Nelson Arts Festival and to operate the Festival in full from 2019. The initial role of the Chair will be to appoint the remaining Trust Board members and oversee the transition of operations from the Council to the Trust.

There will be an application process for the remaining board members once the Chair is appointed. (No remuneration is offered for Trust Board Chair or Member positions).

Chair of the Community Services Committee Gaile Noonan expressed her excitement at appointing a skilled Chair who will bring passion and flair to Nelson's iconic arts and performance event.

“The Nelson Arts Festival is an iconic event which is hugely popular with locals and visitors alike. We know there will be a well-qualified person who will jump at the chance to lead the establishment of the Arts Festival Trust and to ensure this event continues as one of the highlights on Nelson’s cultural calendar.”

Applications close at 4pm on Friday 10 November 2017. This recruitment process is subject to final Council approval.
