This is an update from the Vancouver Society of Storytelling. They held their AGM on March 9, 2014 and were looking for new board members, in particular a Treasurer.
Great News! Volunteers stepped forward to be part of the Board including a person who can fulfil the role of Treasurer.
The organization supports the art of storytelling and storytellers in the Lower Mainland area, mostly in Vancouver. Among other things we put on a festival every two years - June 2014 is the next one. Storytelling as both a performance art and a community activity is alive and well in our city, thanks in part to the efforts of the VSOS to foster its development in many ways.
Meetings are once a month for 2.5 hours. This is a working board! As such, there will be tasks associated with the "business arising" at each meeting. Sitting on the board averages to about 5 hours a month of work. These short five hours mean so much for the health of the organization and a strong board is what will allow us to continue developing and delivering relevant, entertaining programming.
A plan of succession is in the works, but a minimum of one or two years' commitment on the Board is encouraged.
If you would like more information, please contact Melanie Ray at firstname.lastname@example.org or Naomi Steinberg or you can call Melanie at 604-874-3519
Our AGM will be on Sunday March 9th, from 1-3 at the Alliance for Arts and Culture, #100 - 938 Howe Street, Vancouver. A fun opportunity to kibbitz with the storytelling community and hear about the workings of the organization in the past year; there will be (as always) delicious snacks and an entertaining story or two.
