All Oliver Community Arts Council members and visitors are welcome to the OCAC’s Annual General Meeting on Monday February 27 at 9:30 a.m. at the Quail’s Nest Arts Centre, 5840 Airport Road. Renewing and new memberships are welcomed at the meeting. Coffee, tea, and refreshments provided. The AGM is kept short, with a financial year-end report from the Treasurer, a report from the president, and the election of 2012 officers and directors.
Nominations for officers are: Penelope Johnson (President), Esther Brown (Vice President), Diane Gludovatz (Secretary) and Arleyene Farnworth (Treasurer). Ten additional nominees will stand for eight positions as directors of the Board, assuring a democratic election. Additional nominees for all positions are welcomed.
The 2011 Board gave a vote of thanks at its recent meeting for retiring directors Marilyn Marsel, Steve Staresina, and Roger Ulasovetz, and for officers Jack Bennest, treasurer, and secretary Shirley Corley-Rourke. Bennest and Corley-Rourke are both running for director positions in 2012.
