Carson Valley Arts Council seeks board members

Staff Reports

The Carson Valley Arts Council is celebrating 10 years serving the community.

The organization’s ultimate goal is to raise enough capital to completely renovate the Copeland Lumber Building into a new performing and visual arts center for Douglas County.

This 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is currently seeking new board members and volunteers to strengthen its commitment to the arts.

Interim Executive Director and Board Secretary Sharon Schlegel said the organization is losing a number of its board members due to expiring terms, and is now actively seeking new members.

Schlegel said board members meet 5 p.m. the second Thursday of each month at the Copeland Cultural Arts Center, located at 1572 Highway 395 in Minden (corner of County Road and Highway 395).

Board member terms are for two years.

The council conducts five concerts a year and an annual Spring Fest Theatre Fundraiser.

Volunteers are needed to help with concerts, fundraisers and other projects.

These volunteers generally average 10-12 hours of volunteer time per month.

To acquire board member application packets and for more information, contact the council office at 782-8207. Schlegel asked that callers leave a message. Office hours are usually 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. Anyone interested may also email Schlegel at
