So, with the completion of our annual blues challenge and the fundraiser that supports it, the Ozark Blues Society Board of Directors is entering our annual business review period where we review our annual finances, our bylaws, our event planning, and prepare for the 2023 annual meeting/officer elections. This year the offices up for election are president and secretary. We will soon be seeking nominations for these positions on the board, so be thinking. In the meantime,
we would LOVE to hear your thoughts
on what we are doing right, and what
we might do better. Also, any
thoughts on what should be our focus (education, small events, large events, social gatherings for members, etc) would be highly desired. Our annual meeting
has been scheduled for April 5, 2023. Please send questions and comments
by email (HERE) to Vice-President Sandy McCann and help us make Ozark Blues Society the best it can be!
This week we have a new article about one of our partner organizations, The Music Education Initiative. Many of you know them from events at The Juke Joint Project they are featuring at The Pryor Center in Fayetteville. Read on below to learn more about the connections their organization is building.
Returning from last week is the article about the upcoming Celebration of Support for Ocie Fisher. Ocie has been a staple of Ozark Blues Society's Blues in the Schools presentations over the years and a beloved performer in Northwest Arkansas and beyond. Read on below for more information and the link for tickets.
Always remember, this is YOUR newsletter! Please consider sharing dates that for your favorite artists that are not included in the community calendars we use. We would also love to have a local live blues music reporter to share stories for the newsletter. Many bands have time challenges in submitting information and this would be a great way for fans to show them some love! Please send questions, information, feedback, and suggestions our way. Just click on Sandy's email address below.
We appreciate our readers and want
to see your ideas included!
