We are looking for individuals from across the province to support our mission of providing programming, services, outreach, advocacy, and education to the playwriting community in Alberta.

We are looking for nominees who are passionate about theatre.

Board members are elected to a three- year term for a maximum of two terms and are expected to:

·      participate in board meetings (10 meetings a year – 8 conference call, AGM, one in person board retreat)

·      participate on a board committee

·      provide whatever resource you can to the operations of the organization.

Knowledge and skills in governance, finance, fundraising, human resources are an asset, but not a requirement. Most importantly we want engaged individuals at the table.

APN is a small, vibrant, and nimble organization. The board is a working and governance board. If you have ever thought about joining a board but feel that you lack experience – this is the board for you.

What can you expect from the board experience?

·      mentorship

·      the gratitude of the staff and membership.

Year of Entertainment raffle


The APN Board of Directors are in the beginning stages of developing a large annual fundraiser. The “Year of Entertainment” raffle is going to be one of the largest undertakings the APN board has taken on. There will be two raffles: Northern Alberta and Southern Alberta. Our goal is to collect donated experiences from Alberta businesses such as, breweries, theatres, entertainment providers and outdoor adventures to build one year’s worth of fun for one lucky winner in Northern Alberta and one lucky winner in Southern Alberta. All proceeds from the fundraiser will go to maintaining and expanding APN’s current programming. This is an ambitious, but exciting challenge and we are looking for your help!
