Board Elections Coming Soon! Seeking Nominees!

Posted: Sunday, April 21, 2019, 2:46pm

Each year, four seats on the Curtain Players Board come up for election. That's where you come in! Curtain Players invites members in good standing to declare interest in the open seats on the community theatre company’s board of directors.

Let us know by Tuesday, April 30 if you'd like to be considered for the board slate (or, nominate someone if you know a Curtain Player that would be great to have on our leadership team)!

The offices of vice president, treasurer, and two trustee spots are up for election for two year terms beginning July 1, 2019 and concluding June 30, 2021.

The nominating committee, headed up by Casey Merkey will prepare a slate of candidates to be presented for election at the May membership meeting.

The Curtain Players board meets monthly. All board members assume and share various and multiple duties and projects of theatre administration, governance, and operations.

Members interested in the available offices should contact Vice President Casey Merkey at vice.president@curtainplayers.org by Tuesday, April 30. Questions, too, should be sent to that address.

QUALIFICATIONS FOR CANDIDACY  Curtain Players candidates must be members in good standing. Membership in the theatre is defined for individuals as having documented production credits (on stage or on production staffs or crews), volunteer hours (from Set Build Saturdays and committee work), or recorded donations to the theatre.

Similarly, those casting ballots must be members in good standing according to the same criteria.

Candidates may be nominated form the floor at the May membership meeting, but contacting Casey Merkey for consideration for the slate is encouraged.

VOTING  Voting will take place during the spring membership meeting. Candidates will have an opportunity to introduce themselves to the voters before balloting. No ballots will be cast in absentia. Votes will be counted and officeholders announced that evening.

The president (Heather Schultz), secretary (Sharifa Andrews), and two of our four trustees (Sean Brinker and Wendy Brinker) are serving terms ending June 30, 2020.
