Letter from the President,
Hello, Current and Former Members of Geauga Council for Arts and Culture,
Hope this letter finds you well. I wanted to contact our members for several reasons - to give you some information as well as to ask for some input.
First, the information:
Our third annual "Arts Jam" will once again be held this summer on June 20th on the square in Chardon - and we are looking for volunteers. From serving on one of the main committees: artists, marketing, overall planning to working the day of the event, we could use some help - and you could have fun with a great group of people. If you're interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now the request for input:
We need more members - both on our board and on our roster. We have been sponsoring several arts related events over the past few years and would like more involvement from our members. We are talking about an event at Cleveland Art in the spring. We had quite a good turnout for that last year. Would this, one of the options below, or something else nudge you to come out and join us?
- music from a local artist?
- a workshop with a visual artist?
- a social event with cocktails/snacks, etc.
- something else? ________________________________
We really would like to have your input on this. You can respond directly to this email. Please let us hear from you!!
This will be our last letter if you have not paid dues for this year. If you are interested in staying a member or becoming a new member, contact me at email@example.com and I will send the materials to you right away. Thanks for your interest in the arts.
