TPS is a leadership and service organization founded in 1997 to advocate for the region’s growing theatre community’s causes and administer much-needed services. TPS is the Northwest’s leading arts advocacy and leadership organization, providing programming and services that benefit both the theatre community and the larger regional arts community. TPS has a twofold mission: To promote the spiritual and economic necessity of theatre to the public, and to unify and strengthen the theatre community through programs, resources, and services. Theatre Puget Sound represents more than 1800 individual and 145 organizational members across the region’s performing arts sector.
TPS seeks a Member Liaison to act as official representation to our membership.

There is a modern, social media component as well as an old-fashioned, hand-shake approach to dealing with our membership, both equally important. Will direct report to Program Manager with oversight of ED.
