Recruiting Board Members

The Collaborative Houston Art & Performance Society is the non-profit organization that handles legal and financial items for the Houston Burner warehouse and Unbroken Spring. The organization is known as (dba) Houston Burners, and occasionally by its acronym CHAPS.

(please note that many dates below have been updated since the original post, but the timeline remains similar and ends about the same time in June)

Board members meet monthly, serve on various committees, make policy for the organization, review and approve expenditures and disbursement of money, vote on actions to be taken by the non-profit organization, and collectively assume responsibility for organization-sponsored activities, such as Unbroken Spring. You can read about what’s expected of Board members in the Board Annual Commitment they are asked to sign.

Houston Burners needs people to add to the Houston Burners Board of Directors, and we’d like to hear from you.  Do you know somebody you think would be a good choice for a board member? Would you like to serve on the board yourself?
