The Arts and Cultural Alliance is currently seeking 2-3 more board members. We meet monthly via Zoom and hope to meet quarterly in person around Central Oregon when COVID-19 allows it. Our goal right now is seeking information from the regional arts and culture community to learn how to shift the focus of the ACA to meet current needs.
If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
