JOB POSTING

OPERATIONS AND PROGRAMS ADMINISTRATOR
American College Dance Association

Status Full-time, with benefits

Reports to Executive Director, American College Dance Association

Review of applications begins June 10, 2019.

Start date is mid to late-August (negotiable). Position open until filled.

WHAT WE DO AND WHO WE ARE

The American College Dance Association (ACDA) is a non-profit organization that supports and promotes the wealth of talent and creativity prominent in college and university dance departments through the sponsorship and organization of 13 annual regional dance conferences and the biennial National College Dance Festival. The conferences allow students and faculty to engage in four days of
master classes, workshops, and panel discussions taught and/or led by instructors from around the country. Additionally, ACDA conferences provide the unique opportunity for student, faculty, and guest artist choreography to be adjudicated by a panel of nationally recognized dance professionals in an open
and constructive forum. The National College Dance Festival, most recently presented at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, showcases works selected from each regional conference for presentation on three gala concerts. In 2018, over 5500 dancers and faculty participated in ACDA regional conferences and the National College Dance Festival. The largest membership organization for dance in U.S. higher education, ACDA promotes excellence in American college dance through additional activities and means including partnerships with Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, the American Dance Festival, Dance Magazine, and the National Performing Arts Funding Exchange.
A dedicated group of dance educators and professionals make up the people of ACDA. The 59-person ACDA Board of Directors, led by an Executive Committee of seven officers, oversees large aspects of the Association and its membership, and regional conferences. Executive Director Diane DeFries, the eighth Executive Committee member, directs the ACDA National Office, overseeing all administrative
aspects of ACDA, supporting the development of each conference and festival, and collaborating with the ACDA Board of Directors on all operational functions of the Association.

The ACDA National Office is located at 15 West Montgomery Avenue, Suite 301 in Rockville, MD, a diverse community of established residential neighborhoods and growing commercial centers, 21 miles outside of Washington, DC. On the top floor of an historic Victorian three-story walk-up building, the ACDA National Office is less than one-half mile from the Rockville Metro Station (Red line).
