The Actorsingers hold two business meetings a year, one in January and one in June. We encourage all members to attend these important meetings. This is your chance to be heard and express opinions on matters of relevance to the organization. We need to have as many members as possible attend in order to establish a quorum (25% of the active membership). This is so we can vote on issues brought to the floor as well as the Slate of Officers who will serve on the Board of Directors for 2019/2020. Our theatre group would not exist if not for the dedicated volunteers who give of their time and energy. Please become one of them and plan on attending the meeting…and, of course, socializing! It is also at the Annual meeting that Awards, including Scholarships and Life Membership for distinguished service to the organization, are presented. Come show your support on Monday, June 10! See you there.
