NOTICE OF ELECTION
Now Accepting Nominations for the Board of Directors
WHAT DOES BEING A BOARD MEMBER AT ACT MEAN?
Amelia Community Theatre is now accepting nominations for the Board of Directors. Being a board member at ACT means being part of a diverse team to ensure a robust and healthy future for ACT. As a nonprofit 501(c)(3), "community" is more than a middle name at ACT. ACT relies on community members volunteering their expertise and time as Board Members to guide the organization toward a secure and sustainable future. Board Members provide ethical, legal, and fiscal governance of ACT. The ACT Board of Directors is a group of at least twelve individual board members. Together the board of directors ensures that ACT has the resources it needs to advance its mission: "to provide quality theatre and artistic experiences to the community through participation and presentation." Having a diverse board of directors is an essential part of making ACT the best it can be. It takes a variety of backgrounds, skills, and abilities to help further ACT's mission. If you want to see ACT continue to succeed in providing great theatre to our community, then you should apply/self-nominate to be a board member.
HOW LONG DO BOARD MEMBERS SERVE? The term runs from the July 2021 Annual Meeting until the July 2023 Annual Meeting. Each director will serve a two-year term and may be re-elected for a second two-year term. No director may be elected for more than two consecutive two-year terms.

Must be knowledgeable about ACT's programs and services or demonstrate a robust interest in ACT.
