2016 Board of Trustee Election Announcement

On January 26, 2016, The Freehold Borough Arts Council will be holding its annual election for the Board of Trustees in 2016. The election will take place during our annual reorganization social event.

This years event will take place at the Freehold Elks Lodge 1454 located at 73 East Main Street, Freehold NJ 08827. Please join us for cash bar and light snacks as we present our guest speaker Calvin Schwartz, Writer/Producer/Co-Host NJ Discover TV & Radio. Also Co-host Rock on Radio Show Sunday Nights. So come and listen to Cal talk about music, the paranormal, and his adventures! Cal will also be signing his paperback novel Vichy Waters which will be for sale. You can read the outstanding reviews here http://www.vichywater.net/ Looking forward in meeting old and new friends, and joining the Freehold Borough Art Council.

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. President Jeff Friedman is leading the election process this year. Though we have three 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 Jeff 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. The trustees up for election this year are Brian Sullivan, Lynn Reich and Gil Burgess. There is one empty seat this year that can be filled by election or appointment by the FABC president with approval from the Board of Trustees. 

Once the election of trustees takes place, the 2016 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 at the follow up, regular trustees meeting, after 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, 2015.

The election will take place during the winter social event.


For people who have no interest in voting, please keep in mind that your dues and sponsorship have helped a great deal. 2015 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.
