National Assembly of State Arts Agencies seeks manager for arts education institute

The National Assembly of State Arts Agencies (NASAA) seeks an experienced manager to coordinate the planning and implementation of the 2014 Professional Development Institute (PDI) event.

The PDI is a leadership development event for arts education managers from the nation’s 50 state arts agencies. Each year these managers convene at the PDI to deepen their knowledge of effective arts education principles, practices and policies and to exchange ideas and information. The PDI is a long-standing cooperative program of NASAA and the Arts Education office of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).  The 2014 PDI will take place November 11-13 in New Orleans, Louisiana, and is expected to involve about 60 participants.

The Professional Development Institute manager holds primary responsibility for staffing the PDI and helping NASAA, the NEA and state arts agencies attain their goals for this event. Duties include a mixture of project management, communications and logistics activities. An additional important function of this position is to facilitate the peer-to-peer networking of state arts agency arts education managers

Candidates must be able to start no later than June 1, 2014—ideally earlier. Travel to New Orleans is necessary for a June 4-6 site visit and the November 11-13 PDI event.

This job requires an average of 25-30 hours per week, with the flexibility to devote more hours during peak times. Candidates must be available to work full time during the site visit and the PDI meeting. Telecommuting is a possibility for candidates with a high level of prior experience and pre-existing knowledge of this field.
