View, the arts center in Old Forge, is looking for people who are interested in serving on its Board of Directors or in serving on the Nominating Committee. Board members are required to be a member of View and to attend 10 board meetings annually in person or by teleconference. Each board member serves on at least one committee and is expected to be actively engaged in View activities. The Nominating Committee is charged with reviewing names for the Board of Directors and presenting a slate to be voted on at View’s annual membership meeting (this year on Tuesday, August 27).
If you are interested in serving, or would like to submit names of individuals whom you believe would be interested, please contact Leslie Bailey at (315) 369-6411, ext. 212 or Lbailey@viewarts.org with contact information and a brief bio, as soon as possible. Names submitted will be shared with the Nominating Committee.
View was founded more than 60 years ago, and is a year-round, multi-arts presenter of visual and performing arts located in Old Forge. Its signature exhibition schedule includes pastels, watercolors, fine arts, and quilts. Performances include music, theater, dance, and film. The member-based, non-profit organization also offers workshops, lectures, and special events. The facility, a 28,000 square-foot, LEED-certified building on Route 28, is also used for weddings, meetings, and community events.
View is a growing organization, currently employing 12 people with seven interns in the summer. As part of its mission, View serves as a catalyst for encouraging the creative spirit that has long been an Adirondack tradition. The Board of Directors guides the organization in meeting its mission and reaching its goals.
