Recently I was pleased to work with and advise selected members of the Storytelling Arts Board as they engaged in the necessary and fulfilling work of developing a new strategic plan. It was a terrific experience which allowed us all to capture the mission, vision, commitment and excitement of the organization. Teachers and parents should know that committed volunteers are focused on the meaningful work of Storytelling Arts and committed to this non profit's future.
