McClellanville Arts Council searching for new director

The McClellanville Arts Council, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit, seeks a dynamic, experienced individual familiar with nonprofit practices and policies to serve as the director of the organization.

The director serves as the organization’s primary contact with artists, writers, local schools, and other organizations. He or she is responsible for daily operations of the Arts Center and for the long-term development and execution of the MAC’s mission statement, strategic planning, and policies.

This job requires working with the board of directors, interacting with prospective donors, collaborating with other organizations, communicating in a sometimes high-profile multi-cultural environment, and fostering community involvement. The ideal candidate would be a visionary leader with strong skills in consensus building, fundraising, and grant writing.

Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated skills and/or experience in organizational, financial, and project management; grant writing and grant/contract reporting management; direct fundraising; and nonprofit arts management, including gallery operations and programming. Competence with computers and applications, including QuickBooks and social media, is very important. So is a sense of humor.

The mission of the McClellanville Arts Council is to enhance the quality of life in the Sewee to Santee area of Charleston County, S.C., through arts and educational programming, and to record, preserve, and publicize the unique culture of McClellanville and the surrounding communities.
