The United States Regional Arts Organizations are a collective of the six regional nonprofit arts service organizations, of which SCAC partner South Arts is one.

Together, the USRAOs work to activate and operate national arts initiatives, encourage, and support collaboration across regions, states, and communities, and maximize the coordination of public and private resources invested in arts programs. In FY2021, they invested more than $28.3 million across the United States and its jurisdictions, through more than 3,000 grants that reached more than 1,600 communities.

The collective is now looking for its first leader.

Reporting directly to the collective’s two co-chairs while focusing on a set of priorities established in close collaboration with the whole RAO leadership, the full-time national director will play a critical role in developing and coordinating the shared national programmatic and fundraising vision of the USRAOs as a united national collective. Serving as the lead coordinator and fundraiser for the collective, the national director organizes and participates in the design and development of shared plans and programs; provides guidance to the executive leaders of each USRAO and supervises the day-to-day operations of the shared service hub including budgeting, internal and external communications and managing contracted support.

Collaborating with the collective executive leadership of the USRAOs, the national director will ground the foundational development of the USRAOs shared service hub in an action-focused, measurable, and reportable commitment to equity, inclusion, and access. This position works remotely without restrictions on location within the United States and will require travel. The starting annual operational budget is $300,000; the starting salary for the national director is $150,000.
