PAA Board Members Needed for 2024
We are looking for a few PAA Members to join our Board next year. Mentorship is available from the current Board Members holding the positions below. Your mentor will guide you in assuming their current roles with PAA. We are a collaborative and working Board. We foster an accepting environment and will help you grow into your new role. Please direct questions or express your interest in one of the Board positions below to PAA’s President, Lynell Phillips at 415-793-2134 or email email@example.com.
The Placerville Arts Association Board meets the first Friday of each month (except December) at the Senior Center on Springs in Placerville from 9:45 AM to Noon. Board Members not able to attend in person may attend using Zoom. Board Members must be members of Placerville Arts Association.
If none of the openings below seems like a fit for you, any PAA Member is invited to attend our monthly Board meeting as a Board Advisor. Attending the Board meetings is a great way to become more involved in helping PAA produce our various events.
Duties include event production not covered elsewhere on the PAA Board. This may include working with Arts and Culture El Dorado to recruit PAA members to hang their art in El Dorado County public spaces, produce special Member Shows such as our recent Summer Member Show at the Bank of America Gallery at Harris Center in Folsom, or creating other popup opportunities for PAA artists to show their work.
Attend member meetings and set up sign up sheets and name tags. Ensure that required paperwork has been completed once for members and guests and submitted to Senior Center. Circulate sign up sheets for members to bring snacks to member meetings. Set up snack table at member meetings. Work with show chairs on receptions for member shows, Mother Lode show and special events including ordering food trays and beverages, setting up hospitality table at events, and recruiting hospitality staff for event.
