EXCOM NEW JOB DIVISIONS
At the EXCOM meeting of 7/18 Chair Keith Martin proposed a new set of responsibilities for the officers of MTA to improve the efficiency of MTA operations. The Chair will oversee operations, handle the mailbox and spearhead projects. The Vice Chair will arrange the programs and regional spotlights for the quarterly meetings. The Secretary will keep the minutes of all meetings, maintain the mailing list, develop a telephone tree for getting MTA info to members and begin to put some kind of structu re to the MTA archives. The Treasurer will handle the books, and new memberships. A new position, At Large, will publish the Callboard newsletter, maintain the master calendar, and initiate the homepage on Charlotte's Web.
It is hoped that these divisions will make it easier for MTA to function.
Vice Chair Ginger Heath is looking for a few good program ideas for this year's MTA meetings. Anyone with suggestions can contact Ginger at the address listed in the Callboard. This is your chance to make MTA meetings meaningful and useful. Got a n idea! Call Ginger.
As of this writing, a game of musical critics is taking place at the Observer. Tony's Back! Larry's gone back to the movies. Dean Smith is leaving for a year in Paris. And a new face is joining the Arts Department at the paper. Willa Conrad, fo rmerly of the Toledo Blade, has signed on with Knight-Ridder to work the Charlotte Arts beat.
So Welcome Willa, good ta' see ya' again Tony, thanks Larry for pulling double duty, and I don't even want to talk about a paid year in Paris!
Here's a big MTA "THANK YOU" to the folks out at Carowinds for putting on such a fine June meeting. If you missed it, shame on you!
The MTA script library needs a home. Part of the mission of the MTA is to create and maintain a script library for membership use. But in order to be effective the library needs a home accessible to everyone. Got a space crying out for a bookshelf? T hen call Ginger Heath. She'll gladly fill it for you.
And don't forget that each time your company does a show you can donate one of the scripts to the library. Looking for a script for your next show? Then check out the MTA script library. In this day and age of reduced arts funding why spend money on s cripts if you can borrow then for Free!
Come blow your horn! MTA Spotlights is looking for groups that want to be highlighted at this year's meetings. Got a new facility? Solved an age old problem? Found a new way to put on a show?
