Hello folks, meet Dolita Brown. You may recognize Dolita’s welcoming smile from the Arts Market information tent or, up until a few weeks ago, from her post at the front of the Arts Council office. You may have thought Dolita was our receptionist— but she is so much more to the Arts Council.
As Membership Manager, Dolita has revamped our membership program and boldly set a goal to DOUBLE ARTS COUNCIL MEMBERSHIP BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR.
Why this year? We have a new CEO and lots of ideas for enhancing the local arts community so we think there’s no better time to welcome new friends into the Arts Council. And besides, as patient and sweet as Dolita is, she’s a real go-getter and thinks it’s about time that folks realized how cool the Arts Council really is.
We need your help to reach Dolita’s goal.
Over the next few weeks we will introduce you to our newly expanded staff, let you know what we’re up to and share our reasons to gain your support. So whether you’ve lapsed in membership or never signed up before, we hope you plan to join the Arts Council as an official member in 2014. After all, who couldn’t use a few more friends?
