ABOUT OUR BOARD

The Board of Directors for Rainbow Stage is comprised of a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 16 directors. The board usually meets once a month.

Our current board includes 14 directors. There are 2 positions currently open, specifically in governance and production, which are being actively sought at this time (January 2021).

Those wishing to express interest in serving in either of the above positions are invited to send a letter of interest and resume to Julie Eccles, Executive Director at jeccles@rainbowstage.ca, who in turn will forward your interest to the Chair of the Nominating Committee. If you belong to an employment equity group and wish that to be considered in your application, please indicate that in your submission.
