The Development Chair for the North Carolina Museums Council oversees fundraising activities, solicits sponsorships, cultivates and maintains sponsor and vendor relationships, and identifies grant opportunities in support of the NCMC mission. The main focus of this position is to act as the primary facilitator for any fundraising initiatives undertaken on behalf of NCMC. This position works collaboratively with the Treasurer, Membership Chair, Professional Development Chair, Annual Meetings Chair, and Nominating Chair, and other board members as necessary. This position is ideal for an emerging professional with some fundraising experience but is not limited to those already working in development. The position will be guided by museum professionals working in development who have agreed to serve in an advisory capacity. This position offers emerging professionals interested in development work an opportunity to build new skills and benefit NCMC's mission through increased revenue. Requirements for this position include attendance at the NCMC board’s quarterly meetings, and the submission of a quarterly Development report.
To apply for this position, please send a statement of interest and a resume or CV to Jeremiah DeGennaro, Nominating Chair.
