Our next meeting is scheduled November 17, 2020
Quesnel Arts & Recreation Centre in the Board room
The Quesnel Festival of the Performing Arts is a non-profit society depending 100% on the generous contributions of time and energy from its many dedicated volunteers. We always need some fresh faces around the QFPA table.
“Many hands make light work” is something of a cliché, but a very applicable one. Would you like to join us to enable QFPA to continue to provide this unique opportunity for the performing arts youth of Quesnel?
QFPA holds monthly planning meetings from September until May, with a summer break. Executive elections occur at the AGM in June. Experienced and retiring members are able and willing to provide mentorship to new executive members, and positions may be shared on a “team” basis – so come on out, and bring a friend!
For more info on meeting dates and what is involved in taking part in the QFPA executive, call the 2020-21 QFPA President Jenny Brautigam at 250-316-2067.
Many thanks to QFPA’s 2019-2020 directors!
