WE NEED YOU!
The AECT non-profit board is seeking new members to make our incredible youth experiences happen. The AECT Staff and programming does not happen without community involvement.
The Board meets once per month to discuss ongoing efforts at fundraising, grants, education initiatives, and various other matters. Everyone has expertise that’s valuable to the Board. Accountants can come help with the books, social media gurus can help write the newsletter and manage the website, handy folks can dig in helping to ensure quality tools and equipment is available, people good with kids can help wrangle actors backstage.
Reach out to Board President Paul Beczkiewicz at email@example.com and we will be in touch for a conversation about your contribution to service. An email does not sign you up for anything, so feel free to reach out to just learn more.
