The rising participation, mainly by adults in Greek traditional dances activities which cultural associations offer, has driven to the creation of a new job market for a great number of executives. The aim of the study was to research the correlation between job security and job satisfaction that feels the personnel of cultural associations which include activities with Greek traditional dances. The sample constituted 99 members of nonprofit cultural associations. The evaluations took place with the use of the questionnaires “Employee Satisfaction Inventory” of Koustelios and Bagiatis(1997) and “Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire” of Weiss, Dawis, England and Lofquist, (1967). The correlation analysis showed that there is a positive correlation between job security and some factors of job satisfaction. More specifically, job security has a positive correlation with “pay” (p<.05), “promotion” (p<.01), “supervisor” (p<.01) and with “cultural association in total” (p<.01). Using the organizational theories in new areas and cognitive issues like Greek traditional dance, arises that the managers of cultural associations should take under consideration job security as a factor that could promote job satisfaction and better outcome of the personnel.
