Ozark Arts Council Participation in HELP Program

The Ozark Arts Council is the owner and operator of the historic 1929 Lyric Theater in Harrison, Ark. Funds raised are used to maintain the theater and allow the OAC to host a variety of events, including plays, concerts, art exhibits, and educational workshops.

In 2008, the organization was selected as one of sixteen participants for the Mid-America Arts Alliance HELP program, part of Mid-America's Professional Development division. HELP combined workshops, on-site consultant visits, and online tutorials to assist in goal-setting and evaluation.

I served as the Board representative, receiving invaluable training in fundraising, board development, and long-term planning. I had the photo taken and submitted it to the media, garnering press coverage for the organization.
