WOW Hall Annual Membership Meeting
April 25 • 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm• Free - $35
On Wednesday, April 25, the Community Center for the Performing Arts (CCPA) will hold its Annual Membership Meeting at the WOW Hall.
The Community Center for the Performing Arts is the nonprofit (501c3) organization that owns and operates the historic Woodmen of the World (WOW) Hall at 8th and Lincoln Street. Its mission is to provide cultural arts and educational opportunities for all ages and income levels, preserve and operate the WOW Hall as a multipurpose community arts center, and maintain a supportive environment for local artists and their creative efforts.
The CCPA is a membership organization that currently receives the support of more than eight hundred dues-paying and volunteer members. Members meet annually to learn about the progress of the organization, approve the budget for the next fiscal year, and fill vacancies on the Board of Directors. This year six of the nine board positions are up for election; five require a two-year commitment and one a one-year commitment. To qualify for a position on the board, a person must be a CCPA member 30 days prior to the annual meeting. Board members are also expected to contribute time (around 10-15 hours per month), money and expertise.
The annual meeting will also include an open forum where the public will have the opportunity to ask questions or make comments. The meeting is free and open to the general public, but only CCPA members may vote. Anyone who supports the mission of the organization may become a CCPA member by making an annual donation of $15-35 or more or by contributing ten hours or more of non-show volunteer time.
Doors open 6:30 pm for a reception (refreshments provided) and the meeting is scheduled for 7-10 pm. Anyone who wishes to become a member of the CCPA, find out more about membership or who wants to check their membership status, should please call the WOW Hall office at (541) 687-2746. Office hours are noon – 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday
