The Arts Coalition of Delta County, known also as AC/DC has opened up a process where local Delta County residents may apply to be on the board of directors of a nonprofit organization whose goal is to organize and promote the arts in Delta County.
Richard Weldon, chairman of the board of directors, stated, "AC/DC, which will build a large auditorium and amphitheater in Delta County, has been working the past few years to get the word out about its plans and has conducted several fundraising events in the county. We now have several vacancies open on the board of directors and hope to fill them with interested residents of Delta County. Three vacancies occurred because of health and the other one by our vice president moving away. We also hope to also expand our board to nine members if possible."
Weldon says Delta County needs a new auditorium with updated equipment, larger capacity seating area, a place that has dual uses and one that can draw new money to our struggling economy. The 1,500+ seat auditorium would create revenue and jobs for many years to come. "It will also be a place to showcase the arts of all forms in Delta County and bring in new jobs and job training to this area," Weldon said.
Anyone interested in serving on the board should be a resident of Delta County and be prepared to discuss their experiences and what they could offer to the organization, such as experience applying for grant funds or website development. The first interview will be conducted by phone or by email. The board will look at the individual's information and then issue an invitation to the next meeting on Monday, Dec. 11. Call 640-6520 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information or applications.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
