Central Florida Community Arts - Diverse Leadership Pipeline 


To address board vacancies and succession at our region’s nonprofit arts and cultural organizations, United Arts created the Diverse Leadership Pipeline to help the entire arts and cultural sector recruit new members.
This program will help connect individuals who may be a good match based on their interests and skill sets, with local arts and cultural nonprofit organizations. It’s designed to help ensure the leadership of Central Florida’s arts and cultural community reflects its diverse population. Without diverse people included in the decision-making process of our boards, we will not reach our vision that all people of Central Florida have access to the arts.
1. Review the cultural organizations’ profiles below, and then 2. Complete the application at the bottom of this page or on the organization’s profile page!

If your nonprofit arts and/or cultural organization would like to be included, please reach out to Sean Thurman, Marketing & Communications Director at United Arts: Sean@UnitedArts.cc.

We are in need of diverse influential individuals with experience serving on nonprofit boards, with particular focus on the following areas of expertise: Finance, Human Resources, PR/Marketing/Communications, Legal, Real Estate.

Diversity is a key priority for CFCArts; we are actively seeking board members of color to serve with the organization.”

  • Board members are required to make a gift to CFCArts in an amount meaningful to them, and encouraged to make CFCArts one of their top philanthropic priorities, but there is no specific financial contribution required.
  • Board members are nominated and approved on a rolling basis throughout the year, with no set calendar.
  • Each member serves for one 3-year term, with optional renewal for a second 3-year term. Any additional extensions are determined by the Board of Directors.
  • “Board members are expected to attend regular meetings, which occur every other month (6 per year) on Thursday evenings (6:30pm-8:30pm) at the CFCArts main administrative campus (with Zoom option). Board committees have varying schedules, with some meeting monthly (Development) and others on an as-needed basis (Venues) – both in person and via Zoom.Board members are also expected to attend CFCArts performances as their social schedule allows, as well as the annual Anniversary Breakfast (held in late September each year).”
  • Board members may serve on one or more of any of the following committees: Finance, Development, Artistic & Creative, Venues, HR & Managed Growth, Operations & Infrastructure.


CFCArts exists to serve and build community through the arts.
