The Southeastern Connecticut Cultural Coalition is a rapidly growing, independent nonprofit organization that serves as one of the nine ‘Designated Regional Service Organizations’ (DRSO) for the CT Department of Economic and Community Development’s Office of the Arts. Our mission is to foster region-wide economic growth in New London County by optimizing existing and new arts, cultural, and heritage activities to ensure that these assets are central to regional vitality.
Reflecting the connection between strong regional economies and a strong cultural sector, the state is organized into nine regional organizations that provide leadership to advance the creative economy statewide. The Southeastern Connecticut Cultural Coalition was created in 2013 to represent, connect, and advocate for the New London and Norwich region’s cultural and creative sectors. The Coalition now stands at nearly 400 partners, including museums, historical societies, creative businesses, and economic development agencies. The Coalition is a 501(c)(3) organization staffed with a full-time Executive Director, and governed by a board of directors comprising cultural, community, and business leadership.
The organization is searching for an entrepreneurial, business-focused Assistant Director who has experience with arts/cultural/heritage organizations and nonprofit management and understands the sector’s role as an economic driver. This Assistant Director will provide a strong community presence, promote partnerships with other organizations, and advance the Coalition’s mission.
This is a full-time salaried position reporting directly to the Executive Director. The position requires teamwork with the Board committees, working groups, and volunteers.
This position is remote to start and will transition to an office location in the region in the coming months. Internet access is required. As the sole support to the Executive Director in a growing organization, it is expected that this Assistant Director will be able to easily manage all aspects of general operations, including program management and administrative and secretarial support. This is a position that will grow in responsibility and, as such, strives to ensure concomitant growth of resources.
