ABOUT SITI, INC. 

Saratoga International Theater Institute, Inc (SITI, Inc.) is the nonprofit corporation associated with SITI Company, the 30-year-old theatrical ensemble founded by Anne Bogart, Tadashi Suzuki and a group of likeminded artists in 1992. At the conclusion of its 30th Anniversary season in December 2022, SITI Company will end its current iteration as a touring, teaching, performing ensemble with a full-time administrative staff and office. Starting in 2023 SITI, Inc.’s operations will be greatly reduced and the primary focus will shift from creating new work to stewarding the Legacy of SITI Company and its Emeritus Artists. SITI, Inc. will still maintain its commitment to training theater artists but its purpose going forward will be more accurately characterized as “service to the field” as the entity begins to function more as a bridge for new generations of ensembles and as a hub for archival inquiries, training inquiries and alumni support. 

In this new configuration, the Board of Directors of SITI, Inc. seeks to hire a part-time Managing Director, or management firm, who will function as an organizational custodian during a critical transition period. 

POSITION OVERVIEW 

The Managing Director will report to, and work in close partnership with the Board of Directors to execute the strategic goals of SITI, Inc. in its new configuration, which has been structured to bridge the present to the future and to hold space for the possibility of future evolution in 2024 and beyond, or for conscientious closure in several years. The ideal candidate will be experienced in a variety of nonprofit administrative functions, and have stellar organizational, time management, and communication skills. We have outlined the key responsibilities currently envisioned; however, the scope of this position has the potential to evolve in response to opportunities or needs that we cannot currently anticipate.

  • Ensure timely preparation and submission of all final reports to funders of SITI, Inc. and assist with

Board Relations & Planning

  • Board Chair;
  • Prepare Board meeting documents and reports in collaboration with relevant Board members; and

Strong analytical and problem-solving skills, attention to detail, the ability to work with imagination and determination when facing obstacles, impeccable written and verbal communication skills, and computer literacy are essential.

TIMELINE & APPLICATION
SITI, Inc. is seeking to fill this position with an already established independent contractor; however, we are also open to accepting proposals from management firms that provides such services to artists or artist companies. $30,000 has been budgeted annually on the assumption of an average of 40 hours per month. It is expected, however, that work may ramp up over time and that hours will vary month-by-month. Applications and management firm proposals will be accepted through July 1, and may continue on a rolling basis after that. The Managing Director would ideally begin working in October 2022, in order to become oriented with SITI operations and artists before current leadership leaves at the end of 2022.
