The International Playback Theatre Network seeks Board Members
Deadline [30th September 2017]
Dear IPTN Members and Friends of Playback Theatre,
Exactly 30 years ago, Playback Theatre, Inc. was birthed with a mission to “enact personal experiences.” Today, the IPTN Board serves as the keeper of this charter, and invites a few select Playback practitioners to join us. In an effort to serve the international Playback community well, we are looking for culturally diverse representation among recognized leaders. As those who build bridges of understanding through stories and deep listening, we are in a unique position to affect positive change within our communities and beyond.
The IPTN board is responsible for membership services, website, IPTN Journal (formerly Interplay), selecting and supporting organising groups for international conferences etc. The board has officers including President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Coordinator, Conference Liaison, IPTN Journal Editor Liaison. We also have temporary sub-committees for projects. Board members sign up to serve for an initial four-year term with an optional second term. The board meets face to face every two years and online approximately six times a year. Board membership is a volunteer position. On average you should expect to spend about 1 hour/week for your tasks.
A board member needs to be an IPTN Practitioner Member. They are required to be in contact and communicate with the IPTN community in their own area and nearby regions, promote the IPTN, support Playback practitioners, companies and others who express an interest in Playback Theatre.
If you want to know more about the board, please contact our President Jori Pitkänen, [firstname.lastname@example.org] or Secretary Christian Faber [email@example.com]. For more information about the IPTN, please visit the IPTN website: www.iptn.info
If you are interested in applying to join the board, please forward an Expression of Interest telling us about yourself and answering the questions in the following form by [30th September 2017]
Please attach also two references from established Playback Theatre practitioners. The board will make decisions based on your expression of interest and letters of recommendation. We will respond by [31st October 2017].
The board maintains the right to request expressions of interest for new board members by personal call (experience, special competence, region representation).
On behalf of the IPTN Board
