2017 is our 50th Anniversary, and we have some fabulous plans for making it memorable, engaging and FUN!

We will be counting on help, support, input and ideas from YOU! Our Members!
You are the main reason we exist, so our celebrations are really celebrations of YOU!

On Tuesday, November 8 from 6-7pm, we welcome members - current and NEW - to drop by and join in!

Committees include:

Ongoing FUNdraising - organizing small events and activities throughout the year, as well as sponsorship and community donor development

50th Anniversary Committee - we have a giant celebration in the works for April 1, with numerous moving parts and need a lot of hands to make it awesome. (there will be a few sub-committees in this one for specific projects)

External Exhibits - this committee has existed for a while, but we want to formalize and activate it to get your work out there!

Documentarian Committee - a small committee that will document - photograph, write about or video-record - the activities of CVA and our members, to help demonstrate the breadth and depth of the creative community we live in.

Cultural Inventory Committee - this will be a short term committee that strictly deals with the creation, distribution, and collection of our cultural inventory project.

School Poetry Contest & Chapbook - working with our Poet Laureate to promote, collect, jury, organize and publish - last year we had over 300 entries!

... and more. 🙂

This is an excellent opportunity to get a jump on renewing your membership for 2017, or BECOMING a member!

Our regular board meeting will happen at 7pm, for which members are welcome to stay.
