Coordinator of Finance & Development

Submitted by CTAA on Sat, 05/26/2018 - 4:40pm

We are currently looking for a NEW CTAA Committee Member to serve as Coordinator of Finance and Development. This is a VOLUNTEER position, with a required commitment through February 2019, but don’t worry, the rest of us have your back. We came to the realization in our first year that we need another kick-ass team player with knowledge in fundraising, grant writing, and development to join us.

The Chicago Theatre Access Auditions were created by a bunch of Chicago based performers to help other Non-EMC Chicago performers get that extra little push and be seen by Equity Theatres. CTAA is committed to equal representation and helping Equity Theatres see Folx they wouldn’t have gotten a chance to see otherwise.

After an extremely successful first year, we learned that being a part of the CTAAs is a great opportunity to work with other impassioned members of Chicago Theatre, help develop professional relationships with Chicago Equity Theatres, and hone in on those much needed fundraising and sponsorship skills.

Thanks again for checking us out and we look forward to meeting you!
