It’s membership drive season! And our newest business member is Oliver Daily News, the blog “where Oliver gets together to chat”. Many of our programme committees and member groups have been adding ODN to their list of media and advertising contacts. Welcome ODN and publisher Jack Bennest.

The 2010 Membership Drive for the Oliver Community Arts Council just kicked off during the week of the Fall Art Show.
Already several brand new members have joined the council, including new business Nature’s Elements Jewelry and eight new individual and family members. Welcome to Oliver and the arts council! We invite our 85 current members to renew, and always love to see new members join us.
Membership in the Oliver Community Arts Council helps us achieve our constitutional goals of increasing the public’s understanding and appreciation of the arts through a broad range of artistic activities, performances, and educational opportunities.
Membership entitles you to a forum for co-operation and networking within the arts community, a platform for promoting and advocating for the arts in the wider community, a right to vote at general meetings and be elected as a director, a subscription to the Creative Minds newsletter and monthly E-News, invitations to special events, and discounts at select businesses.
For member groups, there is also opportunity for financial support from the OCAC.
Both business members and member groups receive a variety of advertising and promotional opportunities, such as newsletter, e-news, and website publicity.
All members and guests are invited to attend our monthly Arts Jam! held on the fourth Monday of every month at 9:30 a.m. at the Quail’s Nest Arts Centre, Oliver. It’s a great place to share local arts news and discuss arts views. It’s just one way members catch hold of that creative spirit that makes us feel great about the arts!
