A fabulous career opportunity awaits you! The San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus (SDGMC), one of the most visionary, dynamic, and artistically talented volunteer Choruses in the world is seeking an engaging and experienced Executive Director.
Reporting to the Board of Directors and working closely with the Artistic Director, the successful candidate will possess a combination of operational, administrative, and financial management skills. Responsibilities also include marketing, fundraising, communication, outreach, and public relations, along with an enthusiastic, and energetic approach to fulfilling the mission of SDGMC – “To create a positive musical experience through exciting performances which engage our audiences, build community support and provide a dynamic force for social change.“ Experience in a management role with a performing arts group or other non-profit organization is essential. You must also be well organized, motivated, dedicated, ethical, relational, and not afraid to work long hours, including many weekends.
SDGMC consists of an outstanding family of more than 200 singers and dancers, a separate 40-member Chamber Chorale, five paid staff members, 17 Board Members, and more than 100 additional volunteers, all from a wide range of backgrounds. We are fully focused on equality and believe deeply in diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, national origin and all the other fascinating characteristics that make us unique. We produce and perform three major, fully staged shows over multiple weekends, and more than 40 additional small-group performances for community, sporting, civic, and other events throughout the year. We have experienced significant annual growth in membership, revenue, donor base, and audience size for several consecutive years. We are financially robust, and well respected within the City and County of San Diego. This opportunity has arisen due to the announced retirement of the highly successful incumbent, and the new Executive Director will be charged with continuing this trend.
