Dear Z-PAC Theatre members I am standing for President at the AGM, next week on Wednesday 4th March, and I am hoping for your support to continue the great work that Liane and the team have done over the past years.
When I came to Hervey Bay in 1996 and discovered the lovely theatre, I took on the role of Teen Theatre Director, which I continued with for over 2 years and immediately auditioned for a show, working with fellow actor Ken Lee (when we were young Ken!). As many of you know I have acted, directed and provided front of house support for Z-PAC productions. I have also held Management Committee positions of Artistic Director and Secretary. My most recent work was acting in Bombshells last year.
I have studied and worked in both community and professional theatre for most of my life and am able to bring that experience to the role of President. My professional work has also provided me with the experience of leading numerous teams, aligned with strategic plans and a clear and shared vision of where we are heading.
My vision as President is simple. To carry on the work of the current Z-PAC leadership team. To continue to improve the effective and efficient systems and processes already in place, and to maintain and grow the financial and social capital of the theatre.
We have a talented group of keen thespians who volunteer their time, skill and knowledge across all areas of our theatre. We are off to a great start for our 2020 season and will be able to provide quality productions that our audiences expect! I would be proud to support the work of our volunteers in a culture which promotes respect and understanding.
If you are unable to attend the AGM, please consider appointing a proxy who can vote for you.
Thanks for considering electing me as your president and I look forward to supporting Z-PAC Theatre in 2020 as president or life member.
