Civic Theatre forming advisory council

Mar 5, 2013

Civic Theatre’s board of directors is creating a new panel to give input on the organization. The group will be in addition to the organization’s 17 member governance body.

Managing Director Steve Koehler calls it a new resource to improve Civic Theatre.

“We are looking to fill it with all our stakeholders – our patrons, our donors, our past board members and, hopefully, our future board members as well.”

He says those interested will simply advise the theater and organization as it goes forward. The goal is to have an informal social group.
