On Thursday January 15, 2015, 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 firstname.lastname@example.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 2015 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 2015. 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, 2014.
The election will take place during the winter social event featuring Gil Burgess, author, who will be a guest speaker. The social will be held at the Elks Lodge located at 73 East Main Street, Freehold and will begin at 7pm.
For people who have no interest in voting, please keep in mind that your dues and sponsorship have helped a great deal. 2014 was another excellent 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.
