Glasgow Print Studio, (GPS), is seeking non-executive directors.
GPS is currently celebrating 40 years as one of the UK's leading centres for excellence and innovation in fine art print making. This is an exciting time as we take stock of our achievements, but we're not about to rest on our laurels. As an organisation we're looking to the future rather than the past, and as part of our quest to see GPS grow and prosper for another 40 years we're looking for dynamic, forward thinking professionals to join the GPS Board.
Board members currently include individuals from the worlds of finance, law, education, journalism and the visual arts, and we want to build on the skills and knowledge they bring to GPS.
We're particularly keen to talk to people who work in marketing, finance, retail and social-media who can contribute their time and expertise to one of Scotland's internationally-recognised arts success stories, assisting the Director and his hard-working and talented team in ensuring that GPS continues to go from strength to strength.
The Board consists of twelve people elected for a maximum of two terms of three years. Glasgow Print Studio has charitable status and board members receive no remuneration. Members do receive honorary membership of GPS and we hope that you will take an active part in the cultural life of the print studio. Currently, the Board meets six times a year.
If you'd like to know more and are interested in becoming a GPS Board member, please contact us to arrange a meeting with the Chair, Jo Ganter, and other members of the Board. Contact John Mackechnie, Director on 0141 552 0704 or email: email@example.com
