Volunteer Opportunity: Board of Directors

Maryland Humanities is seeking nominations for new members to join its dynamic Board of Directors. The ideal nominee will be a Maryland resident, have a passion for the humanities, and have the capacity to advance our mission.

Nominees should be able to make a significant commitment of time and resources to the governance of Maryland Humanities and our many public programs, including One Maryland One Book, History Day, and Humanities Connection, among others.

We are specifically seeking candidates with deep community connections and a willingness to share those connections with us. We also seek to add members who reflect the demographic diversity of the state, as well as those who offer a broad geographical representation of the state. Of course, all Board member prospects must have a passion for the humanities and the time and energy to devote to our efforts.

Board members’ primary responsibilities include approving and monitoring the organization’s programs and services, ensuring effective fiscal management, fundraising, strategic planning, selecting and orienting new Board members, allocating grant funds, hiring and evaluating the Executive Director, and promoting Maryland Humanities activities. Nominees must be available to travel to quarterly Board meetings and periodic committee meetings and are expected to make Maryland Humanities a philanthropic priority. Members serve without pay and are eligible to serve up to three three-year terms.

Both self-nominations and those of others are welcome. Please complete the Board Nomination Form to be considered. All nominations must be received by July 1 to be considered for election in October.

If you are interested in making a nomination, please complete the information requested in the form below. Thank you for your interest in supporting Maryland Humanities!
