We prefer a 6-week commitment (one show per week) when possible.

Board Members are responsible for strategic planning, fundraising, and advocating for Barrel of Monkeys in their communities and networks. We seek diverse candidates who bring a variety of backgrounds, demographics, experiences, skills, and perspectives to our organization.

If you are interested in Board service, we recommend first volunteering on a sub-committee. We are continually seeking energetic individuals that represent our community to serve in a leadership capacity, and a Board sub-committee is a low-time-commitment way to determine if Board service is right for you!
