SFEMS Annual Meeting Scheduled for September 13


SFEMS will hold its Annual Members’ Meeting on Wednesday, September 13, from 7:00 to 8:15 p.m., at The Musical Offering, 2430 Bancroft Way in Berkeley. All SFEMS members are cordially invited to attend.

This will be an exciting and important year for SFEMS. Our 2017–18 concert season is shaping up to be one of the most varied and interesting in recent history. Affiliate groups will be developing new projects with grant money awarded from the California Arts Council. And next June, we have the 15th biennial Berkeley Festival to anticipate.  So come, celebrate, and help shape the Society’s future! This is your chance to meet your Board, express your thoughts and concerns, and most important, nominate new Directors for the coming year. We especially encourage our members to consider joining the Board.

Please come early for refreshments, as well as a chance to socialize with members of the Board and early music friends. The Members Meeting will be followed by the year’s first Board Meeting, from 8:30–9-30 p.m.

As you know, the Member’s Meeting is one of the most important meetings of the year. We will nominate and elect new SFEMS board members, and at the Board Meeting that immediately follows we will nominate and elect this year’s Officers. Highlights of the Members’ Meeting will be President Robert Cole’s annual report, report on our Affiliates program, nomination and election of new Directors, and an open forum for presentation of members’ ideas and concerns.

Please attend if you can. Or if you cannot, please consider nominating someone who shares the goals of SFEMS and can help us to realize those goals. If you have any questions about this process or, if you or someone you know would like to serve on the SFEMS board, please contact Robert Cole <rwcole415@gmail.com>.

Looking to the future, we need your input and participation more than ever, to sustain and extend the Society’s mission during these challenging times. All are welcome. Help shape the future of SFEMS.
