 board member

The Alliance Francaise de Sacramento (AF) is currently accepting applications for its board of directors. Board members must be members in good standing of the AF who share a common interest in French language, civilization, and culture and are willing to work to help AFS achieve its mission and vision.  

Board members of AFSac serve for a two-year term, renewable, and agree to assume the following responsibilities:  

Qualifications / Skills

The nominating committee will prioritize the following kinds of experience in reviewing applications for board membership:  membership on non-profit boards and/or committees, experience in fundraising, event planning, and volunteering to events, experience working cooperatively in diverse groups, knowledge of the Alliance Française and French culture. 

Board members must be members in good standing of the AF, and available to attend regular board meetings (usually on Thursday evenings), the annual membership meeting (usually on a Saturday), work on board committees, help plan, organize, and volunteer at AF events, and assist with fundraising.  

Because of these responsibilities, applicants should describe their relevant experience in these areas, such as working with community or non-profit organizations as a board member, committee member, or volunteer.  The nominating committee will prioritize experience in fundraising, as well as experience working collaboratively with the AF by volunteering for committees, events, or special projects, as well as familiarity with the AF and French culture.

Members of the AF may submit an application for themselves or on behalf of another member.  The application should summarize the person's background, the reasons for wanting to join the board, and how the person would contribute to the AF. The board's nominating committee may interview prospective candidates and recommend a slate of directors to the membership, with the election held at the annual membership meeting, tentatively scheduled for May.  

Applications should be sent to the AF by email and must be received no later than February 29, 2024.  Applications received after that date, unfortunately, cannot be considered.  Please include contact emails and phone numbers.
