Deadline extended! Applications now due by 11:59PM on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 7
The Rising Arts Leaders of San Diego Steering Committee is made up of volunteers with a passion for the arts and culture community. Our organization is a great stepping stone for career changes, to expand and build on skills, and be part of a strong network of arts leaders. Given the current environment, our work will be done in a hybrid format of in-person meetings and online meetings via Zoom. Our primary means of communication is through Slack. For these reasons, our ideal candidate is highly self-motivated, eager to learn, communicates well, can establish and meet goals and deadlines, and most of all, is a great collaborative team member. As a mover and shaker of this organization, we believe that you get what you put into the Committee.
Join RALSD leadership for Virtual Office Hours on Wednesday, October 27 from 6:30-7:30pm. Learn more about what the Steering Committee does, the application process, and have your questions answered.
Rising Arts Leaders is committed to advancing equitable access to professional development and leadership opportunities.

Furthermore, we acknowledge that the San Diego arts and culture community is diverse and underrepresented groups must be supported.
We provide equal opportunities to people of any race, ethnicity, cultural background, gender, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, marital status, geographic location, philosophy, educational attainment, religion, veteran status, citizenship status, and ability status.
A term is 2 years. Incoming Committee members will serve for 2022 and 2023, with the option to renew 2 more years (for a total of 4 years).

In an effort to build a truly collaborative Steering Committee, we are not seeking applications for specific sub-committee roles in 2022. Instead, candidates who are selected to serve on the 2022 Steering Committee will participate in a hybrid in-person and online onboarding and orientation process at the beginning of the year, during which all new and returning Steering Committee members will contribute to goal setting and role assignments for the term.
