I really appreciated the in-depth view of the specific theater visited. There was a clear explanation of how this theater functioned, including its volunteer programs.
Interacting with other theatres, the opportunity to see plays that were new and fresh, learning new ideas to try at our theatre.
I particularly enjoyed the round-table discussions. Learning how different volunteer groups are and how they do things was fascinating.
CAVORT’s Board of Directors is comprised of appointed members from conference host theatres and members elected at biennial general meetings. The CAVORT Board meets annually – once in the location of the upcoming conference and then during the conference itself. Board members shape the direction of CAVORT with emphasis on member recruitment (both individual and theatre) and volunteer support. Board members donate their service to CAVORT.
If you would like to submit a Board nomination or express your own interest in nomination, send a message to the CAVORT Nominating Chair, Suzanne Mercer, at email@example.com at least six weeks before the upcoming conference.
