ECPS Board Member Opening

Hello everyone!

Due to a recent board member resignation Entertainment and Culture Promotion Society (ECPS) will be accepting applications from the general public in order to fill the currently vacant position. 

The mission of ECPS is to promote cross-cultural learning and community understanding through entertainment and media. Part of that mission includes showcasing cultural programming and content, special guests, representatives from the community, etc., to improve understanding and goodwill. ECPS accomplishes this mission through programs, outreach and, most notably, events. 

The Board of Directors is responsible for overseeing ECPS’ operation and affairs and providing oversight. A board member is responsible for providing counsel and high-level direction for the organization. A board member provides vision for the organization and oversees current operations and future planning, including, but not limited to, sponsoring new event and outreach ideas, overseeing budget and funding, and maintaining our business plan. Above all, a board member is to ensure the continued success of the organization and its affairs. 

The new board member will fill the spot of the outgoing board member’s election spot for the remainder of the original board member’s term, which ends in March, 2021. The new board member will then be able to run for re-election at that time and extend their term for another two years.
