L M ALCOTT ART CENTER FOUNDATION
January 27, 2011
I have been associated with Alcott Arts Center for the past 8 years as both a volunteer and a Board Member. This is a wonderful organization that strives to bring arts awareness to its local community and reach out to communities beyond their own. They offer a wide variety of programming geared not only to actors and artists but families and children. It is a welcoming environment where all artistic endeavors are supported and encouraged.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
As a director, I worked closely with the Board and the Advisors. There was plenty of support and encouragement whenever it was needed. As a vlounteer, I worked alongside Board Members to set up events, do promotions of the Center, and assist wherever there was a need.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Help them get a better infrastructure in place. They are very limited on human resources. There is so much potential that is not being realized simply because there aren't enough people to help and not enough money to make the necessary updates to the building.
Volunteer & I acted as Vice President of the Board of Directors as well as volunteered with several productions. My duties were quite varied, from sweeping floors and setting up for events, as well as directing, costuming and builing sets.
