Call for Expressions of Interest: RDC Arts Centre Advisory Committee membership

January 14, 2019 2:47 PM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

The Red Deer College (RDC) Arts Council Advisory Committee is seeking to fill one member-at-large position, representing the community, for a two year term.

In the early 1980s, RDC constructed a facility that offered much needed space for its expanding performing arts curriculum. Recognizing its importance in a growing city, The City of Red Deer contributed financially towards its construction. In 1983, the two parties entered into an agreement to provide community organizations and the public of Red Deer reasonable access to the facility and to promote its use for the mutual benefit of both the community and College. What followed was the establishment of a Community Advisory Committee that would act to facilitate open communications between the community and Red Deer College.

This committee is comprised of representatives from Red Deer College, The City of Red Deer, as well as members of the public with an interest in community access to this facility. The role of this committee is to act in advisory capacity to Red Deer College on all matters relating to the intent of the agreement, including a review the Red Deer College Arts Centre annual report. 

The Committee is seeking members to fill the following position:

  • (1) Member-at-large – Representing Ongoing Regular Users of the Facility 
    Representative will provide the perspective of an ongoing regular user of the facility, preferably drawing on experience of either being or having been a member of a group that regularly accesses the facility.

Meetings are held no more than once per month and committee members do not receive any form of remuneration. Expressions of interest will be considered and voted upon by voting Committee representatives. Representatives or staff of RDC and The City of Red Deer will not be considered at this time due to a full complement of representation of these parties

Expressions of Interest may be submitted to CultureMailbox@reddeer.ca by February 14, 2019. Please indicate why you are interested in joining the committee, the experience you would bring to the committee, demonstrating why you would make an ideal representative.
