    Fund Raising Committee – The Fund-raising Committee has ceased to exist in a formal way after losing 3 committee chairs in a row. The Board exists as a fund-raising entity in general until such time as a new committee chair steps up to the plate.

There are currently no Programming Committee members serving, Board members agree that getting this committee back up and running again is a priority. Meg Poché is sending reminders to the volunteers in an attempt to attract some interest.

  • If the general manager cannot resurrect the committee, then Board and Staff members will need to combine efforts to make a list of potential members and talk to them directly.
