Dear Cultural Council Stakeholders,
As many of you are already aware, Tony Allegretti is leaving the Cultural Council at the end of September after leading the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville as its Executive Director for the past four years. The agency thanks Mr. Allegretti for his leadership.
We are excited to bring new leadership to the Cultural Council to serve as the spearhead of Northeast Florida's cultural and creative community. The agency Board of Directors formed a Transition Team that developed a comprehensive Executive Director succession plan, the search plan, and the Executive Director job description. Until the position is filled, we will utilize an Interim Director and are currently searching for qualified candidates. In the meantime, the Board has prepared to provide organizational oversight to maintain continuity in the day-to-day operations until an Interim Director or Executive Director is named.
The Executive Director position is now posted on the Cultural Council's website, the job boards of the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida and Americans for the Arts, as well as a number of other national organizations’ websites. Resumes will be accepted from now through September 30, 2018.
Additionally, the board is forming a search committee to identify our next permanent leader; as board chair I will be leading the search committee. The goal is to fill the position by end of the calendar year. We will keep our stakeholders informed as we proceed through the recruiting process.
The Board is committed to enriching life in northeast Florida by investing in arts and culture. We will continue to provide excellence in administration of the Cultural Service Grant Program and the Art in Public Places Program, and will continue to examine the best ways that the Cultural Council can serve our sector and community.
Thank you for your support and, as always, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Chair, Board of Directors
Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville
