A Message from Your New President

posted in: News 0

Greetings Art Council Members!

I am honored and enthusiastic as I begin my term as president and I will be working hard to increase the Council’s presence in the community so we can continue to advance arts and culture in Westbury. My goal as president is to strengthen and organize the Council so we can continue to grow and thrive. I encourage you to contact me with your thoughts, suggestions, comments or critiques. We are a team and communication is key to our success. Let me know how we can improve our communication with you and increase arts and cultural awareness in Westbury and beyond. I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting on November 18. Thank you for your support.
