Spring Membership Meeting Monday!

We’re finishing up our current season, and we have one final Membership Meeting coming up soon. ICCT will hold this Membership Meeting on Monday, May 20th, at 7:00 pm, at The Celebration Farm.

At this Meeting, the Nominating Committee will submit their proposed slate of Officers and At-Large Board Members for the 2013-14 Season, and all Members present will vote on the slate. We will have a final reading of the most recent, proposed changes to the By-Laws and vote upon these changes. Additionally, we will be presenting the slate of shows for our 2013-14 Season, as submitted by the Play & Director Selection Committee and approved by the Board. Any other items will be made available to the Membership before the Meeting, as well.

Because we will need a quorum present, in order to vote on these and other possible issues, we are asking that the Members RSVP to this event by email, at secretary@iowacitycommunitytheatre.com, or by phone, at 319-400-4703, no later than Friday, May 17th, to make sure a quorum will be in attendance.

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the Meeting!
