1. Nomination Form (Self-nominations are accepted.)

The City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture (Commission) welcomes nominations of individuals who add to the diversity, quality and rigor of the Commission's panels that review applications for funding and public art projects - Commission Advisory Panels (CAPs).

CAPs augment the work of the Commission and support the goals of the Commission by providing opportunities for community members to participate in Commission processes, and to utilize the input and feedback of panelists in the Commission’s decision-making processes.

CAPs play a vital part in the Commission’s application review process. Each year, more than 30 volunteer panelists from throughout the San Diego community contribute their time and knowledge to help decide the distribution of City Transient Occupancy Tax funds to nonprofit organizations through a fair and open process.

The Commission strives to convene panels whose members strike a balance among content expertise (arts, tourism, marketing, education, financial management, etc.), community connections and representation of San Diego’s diverse population.

Any interested San Diego County resident or organization headquartered in San Diego County may make a nomination. Self nominations are also accepted. The nominating committee submits a proposed slate to the full Commission, which modifies or adopts it at a regularly scheduled Commission meeting. The Commission retains the applications of community members who have been nominated for service but not appointed.

Panelists appointed to serve must be able to fulfill the following responsibilities:

1. Read and become familiar with written applications and supplementary materials provided prior to the panel meeting.

2. Attend orientation meeting and participate fully in panel meetings.

3. Consider and review each application according to written and published program guidelines.

4. Refer all applicant contact to the Commission staff.

5. Declare all actual or apparent conflicts of interest prior to the discussion of any application.

To be considered to serve on a Commission Advisory Panel (CAP), please submit this survey by September 28, 2012.
