ORGANIZATION: SLANT'D

Slant’d is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit publishing house that celebrates the journey of self discovery through art and the written word. As a new nonprofit, we are looking to build out an experienced and heart-forward Board of Directors to help us secure the resources we need to achieve organizational stability and empower us to deliver on our mission to unlock creative expansion for AAPIs everywhere.


GENERAL BOARD RESPONSIBILITIES

The Board will provide mission-based leadership, boost our fundraising power, and ensure that Slant’d remains in good standing as a nonprofit (this is not a "working staff" role). While day-to-day operations are led by Slant’d’s Executive Director, the Board & Executive Director relationship is a partnership, and the appropriate involvement of the Board is both critical and expected:

  • Monitor the organization’s overall activities, fiscal health, and behavior
  • Ensure compliance with various nonprofit recordkeeping requirements
  • Actively participate in fundraising / development efforts
  • Manage the Executive Director
  • Serve as ambassadors for Slant’d in the community

BOARD TREASURER ROLE & RESPONSIBILITIES

The Board Treasurer is a Board Officer and they sit alongside the fellow Board Officers (Board Chair, Board Secretary) and our Executive Director to form our Executive Committee.


Financial Health & Stability

The Board Treasurer is responsible for the oversight and ongoing monitoring of current and future financial health and stability of the organization.

  • Define and implement financial deadlines and responsibilities
  • Review bookkeeping, including overall accounting, tax documents, etc.
  • Ensure timely filing of all tax obligations for the organization
  • Counsel organizational staff on investment decisions
  • Sign off on annual budget (owned by Chief of Staff)
  • Create and deliver financial reports to Executive Director and other Board Members on an annual basis (aligned to organization’s fiscal period)
  • Prepare audit materials if and when needed

Board Recruitment & Succession Planning

The Founding Board is currently recruiting for a new Executive Committee, who will then recruit additional Board Members to round out the Board of Directors, on a timeline determined by the new Executive Committee.

  • Co-lead the recruitment and appointment of additional Board Members
  • Co-create a skills matrix to maintain a balanced and effective Board
  • Co-develop succession processes to recruit, select, and onboard new Board Members and ensure a smooth transition between Board terms

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Strong personal integrity and a passion for Slant’d’s mission and vision
  • Extensive professional experience with significant leadership accomplishments
  • Exceptional oral and written communication skills
  • Previous Board experience is not required, but welcomed
  • Access to a network of high capacity donors or well-connected community contacts
  • Experience and familiarity with general accounting and developing and managing operating budgets (nonprofit experience not required, but welcomed)
  • Experience overseeing and filing taxes (nonprofit experience not required but welcomed)
  • Bonus: experience with another arts and culture organization

PHILANTHROPIC GIFT

Slant’d’s Board must consider Slant’d a philanthropic priority and make a meaningful annual financial gift that reflects that priority. In order to credibly solicit contributions from foundations, organizations, and individuals, each Board Member has a minimum annual give/get contribution of $3,000.


TERM OF OFFICE

3 years total: As Treasurer, this means that the first 2 years of service will be as the Treasurer and then transition to being a general Board Director for 1 year.


COMPENSATION

All Board Directors (including Board Officers) generously volunteer their time, experience, and connections in a fully-remote capacity without financial compensation. We provide the following as a token of our appreciation:

  • Copies of all printed publications to keep / gift to loved ones
  • Complimentary tickets to all Slant’d events (e.g., magazine launch parties, book tours)
  • Friends & family discount code for Slant’d events
  • Slant’d merch
