The EACAB actively recruits community-minded individuals to serve on the Board.

Our award-winning Cultural Funding Program is seeking interested persons to join the Erie County Arts and Cultural Advisory Board (EACAB) in support of the nonprofit cultural sector. The ideal board member resides in Erie County, desires to support the well-being of the arts and cultural sector, and has professional experience in philanthropy, nonprofit management, nonprofit accounting, education, arts, culture, law, workforce development, tourism, and strategic planning. Most of our work is in reviewing grant applications submitted by nonprofit organizations.

Board Candidates must be willing to take an active role. This work requires attention to detail and is a significant time investment during the second quarter of each year.

Individual skills that will benefit EACAB include analytical thinking, thoughtful communication, the ability to read financial statements and evaluate budgets, and the ability to fulfill independent assignments. Self-motivation is key. Training, reference, and review materials are provided. 

Board member terms are three years, beginning January 1. At a minimum, the Board meets four times a year. Additional information is available in the "Background" tab. Please review the Board Member "Duties Description." Board membership is subject to county policies and procedures and the Board's Conflict of Interest Policy.

We encourage any Erie County resident interested in actively supporting our thriving arts/culture sector to submit their resume by 9AM on November 17, 2023, to Briana Zuchowski, Assistant Planner, at
