OCTA'S NEW ROSTER OF RELIEF PROGRAM
Your Oklahoma Community Theatre Association wants to work for you by offering a 'Roster of Relief' in areas where you might need guidance or assistance. OCTA board members are ready to connect with you via phone, email, or even a personal visit to your theatre as part of your membership in our organization.
Through a regional theatre forum, we found some common areas of concern:
Licensing /Copyright - Dealing with publishing houses,
Planning a season,
and Fundraising, to name a few.
Let your OCTA board work for you and help with these, or any area(s) you might like to discuss. Contact Roster Chairperson, Chuck Tweed,at 405/840-0788, or via email at [email protected] .
We are currently members of the following organizations:
- Oklahomans for the Arts
- American Association of Community Theatres
- Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits (Two of our Board members have completed the prestigious Standards of Excellence training - Recognized nationally as the gold standard for Board development.)
Each year on behalf of our membership we attend the following events, with a vendor table to represent our membership:
- Oklahoma Arts Conference
- Arts Day at the Capitol
Biannually at least one of our Board members attends The Southwest Leadership Conference which is sponsored by Sarkeys Foundation to be recognized as a voice for our nonprofit theatres as the majority of attendees are services and agency nonprofits.
Our Board members go as a representative of all our membership, to be a voice for YOU. We hope to let Oklahoma know they have this rich arts resource in cities and towns large and small.
