OFS Needs your support year round
Happy New Year!
As I round out my first year as Executive Director, I reflect on the many challenges that I faced taking on this new role at OFS. It was not an easy year at OFS: our funds were thin, our equipment and software was dated, and our organizational roadmap reflected a time long since passed. I worried daily if I would be strong enough, experienced enough, and patient enough to lead us through these challenges successfully, creatively, and collaboratively.
I could not have faced these challenges if it weren’t for the support and dedication of the staff, board, volunteers, and OFS membership. I am honored to be a part of such a group. I am also grateful to our sponsors, donors, and performers who recognize and support the artistic value that OFS provides.
As we head into 2015, we face many new challenges! It is an exciting time to be a part of OFS. The staff and board have developed a new OFS Strategic Plan to help guide our organization and our ideas to improve your experience at the Capitol Theater! We ask that you join us in refining and defining what that means. If you are not a current member or are new to OFS, sign up on our email list through the OFS website and be a part of the Strategic Planning process. The new year also brings new fun in programming! Oscar nominated movies, summer concerts, mini-film festivals, and educational programming are just some of the exciting things to look forward to!
The generosity and commitment of this wonderful community influences and inspires many, myself included. I thank you for giving me this opportunity, and I thank you for being a part of making the magic happen.
Cheers to all of us and to a new year filled with film, music, and art!
Audrey M. Henley, Executive Director
