2009 - 2011 Board and Committee Chair Elections

It is time to elect new members to the Evening Song Board and Committees and we would like to extend the invitation not only to our current members, but also to our patrons, families and past members who may not have the time to commit to a weekly rehearsal, but would like to volunteer and share their business talents and gifts to help with the organization of our choir.  If you have been looking for an organization to volunteer your time and talents and can commit to one or two meetings a month, we would love your help.

Board Member Terms are 2 year terms and Committee Chair and Sub-committees are a 1 year term.  The following are all the positions available and discriptions of what the positions require.  Board meets at least 2 times a month and Committee and Sub-Committees meet about once a month.  Please prayerfully consider what business talents you may have or what you can do to take part in the success of Evening Song.
