Hey, I've been part of this organization for five years, almost since it first started, and it finally happened. As the director of writing division is on an extended leave of absence, the board has nominated me to be the acting head. I know most of you have probably never heard of this place,but the Women's Studio Center has about 300 members from all over the city, and an operating budget of about 100,000. I am now responsible for arranging all the readings, grants, development, events and trainings, as well as editing the new on-line journal.
It's funny; a year ago I started coveting the position but I thought I would never in a million years get it. And now I have it. Temporarily, at least. Jesus.
I'm a bit overwhelmed. Anyone have any experience running a free-standing non-profit art center?
