BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Candidates must be nominated by a member and seconded by another.
The Board of Directors is composed of seven (7) members. One (1) of the seven persons is elected upon presentation of their nomination by employees, as their representative. The term is of a duration of one year and can be renewed. A member who will be absent during the elections may propose their nomination by conveying their written consent via another present member.

We are seeking members who will adhere to the mandate and mission of La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse, who are interested in its programming and who want to work in a non-hierarchical structure. Candidates can be artists, cultural workers or engaged members of the community. Applications from candidates with competency in fundraising, planning, law, human resources, accounting or conflict management will be particularly appreciated.
