On Wednesday evening, December 6th, NEMPAC held its Annual Public Meeting of the Board of Directors. Held for the first time in a hybrid format, members of the board, staff, and community gathered at 9 Hull Street in the North End or joined from home, to hear a review of highlights from the past year. The evening also featured a special performance of Joaquin Turina’s Fandanguillo by classical guitarist and NEMPAC faculty member Fred Springer.

The meeting began with the slate of nominations for election of Executive Board members. The board voted in Mary O’Neill as Chair, Robin Wehbe as Vice-Chair, Caroline Lamb as Treasurer, and Tchad Cort as Clerk. Elections were followed by brief reports from the outgoing Chair, Doug Bowen-Flynn, Executive Director, Sherri Snow, Educational Programs Director, Allie Carufel, outgoing Treasurer, Robin Wehbe, and Development Manager, Pamela Feo. The reports were centered around the implementation of the 2023-2026 Strategic Plan, and included programming highlights, the current financial status, and acknowledgements of NEMPAC donors and volunteers, as well as the first public announcement of a match opportunity from the board to support the current Holiday Campaign at $11,750.

NEMPAC thanks all who attended the meeting for their support.
