Board Recruitment

Thank you for your interest in joining the IAM Board of Directors!

The IAM Board of Directors is currently recruiting to expand its membership and welcomes your interest.

Our mission is to steward and empower independent art and media projects that foster community and civic participation, and facilitate cultural engagement and free expression.

Through fiscal sponsorship, IAM builds community and horizontal networks to facilitate resource sharing, program collaboration, and audience and community development. Our ultimate vision is to strengthen a culture of democracy by cultivating arts and media projects that engage neighbors in civic life.

In 2021 we received over $3,780,000 in in support of our fiscally sponsored Affiliates. We currently support over 100 affiliates dedicated to non-commercial work in media and the arts, including publishing, theater, dance, music, visual art, film and video, journalism, history, and public-events production.

The Board of Directors oversees all operations with the assistance of a contracted bookkeeper and CPA to ensure operational integrity.
