Approved Measure Ups Board Size to 8

The Curtain Players Board of Directors ranks are increasing from six to eight elected members beginning with the 2017-2018 season.

Members at the general meeting Sunday October 23 voted unanimously to adopt the by-laws amendment.

The board has floated the idea of expanding its size to better guide the theatre’s expanding level of administration, governance, operations, and programming. The board as recently as the 2011-2012 season had 12 elected members on the leadership team. That number was reduced to six in 2013.

Organization by-laws were amended in 2015 to create two-year terms for elected members, thus establishing continuity to the body, as only one half of the board’s members is up for election each year.

As approved, the new board members would be elected in May 2017. According to the approved measure, one of the new board member terms is for one year, the other for two years, thus maintaining the existing rotation of board members.

Details regarding board elections are to be announced later this season.
