Election Notice

On Thursday January 23, 2014, The Freehold Borough Arts Council will be holding its annual election for the Board of Trustees. The Board is comprised of up to twelve FBAC members. These trustees are elected by the members in good standing of the FBAC. (See below for definition of member in good standing)
Each year, four of the twelve trustee positions are subject to election. Trustees Lynn Reich and Brian Sullivan are leading the election process this year. Though we have four interested people in the positions open this year, any active member in good standing may run for a position with the board. Interested individuals should email Brian and Lynn at info@freeholdborougharts.org for consideration at being placed on the ballot. Eligible members will be placed on the ballot with the four who are currently interested. 

Once the election of trustees takes place, the 2014 FBAC trustees will then elect among themselves who will be on the executive committee. The executive positions are: President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. This will be done on the same night as the trustee election. 

Member in Good Standing- This is a member who is up to date with membership dues, regardless of which tier the person signed on with. Founding members should also be paying annual dues in order to maintain good standing, though the Founding Member designation is permanent. For members interested in voting in the election, we will be collecting dues up to the night of the election for 2014. Be sure to visit our membership page at www.freeholdborougharts.org for membership information.An Active Member is a member in good standing who has attended FBAC meetings or volunteered with the FBAC during the year previous to the election, in this case, 2013.

This election notice does not include the actual meeting details of when and where the election will be. That information will be published very soon as a few minor details are finished up. During that meeting, the election will be a fast and simple process. Due to excellent feedback from members, we are changing our general meetings. We are expected to have guest speakers, music, and a whole lot of fun. Our general meetings will be lighter on business and emphasize local arts even more than we do now. 

For people who have no interest in voting, please keep in mind that your dues and sponsorship have helped a great deal. 2013 was a record year for the FBAC and each year is a bigger success as we help the local arts community grow. We cannot do that without your help. 

The FBAC is a registered not for profit organization. We remain committed to serving all of the Freehold and arts community. Our meetings and activities are open to all who wish to learn, participate and have some fun.
