How do I get on the ballot?

Send a letter of interest to centralparkplayers@gmail.com, include:

  • Your Name
  • Photo (headshot)
  • Your involvement with CPP &/or similar organizations.
  • Why you would be a great fit for the board.

Are there any prequalifications for directors?

The only requirement is that you must be an active member at the time of the election.

You do not need previous experience on a board, on stage, or behind the scenes at Central Park Players. Our board is made up of directors with a number of different backgrounds. For us to maintain & grow our organization, it is important that our board members offer a variety of strengths and skills.

I have a conflict and cannot attend the annual meeting / picnic. Can I still run for election or cast a vote?

As we are holding our meeting earlier this year, and we have not announced it very far in advance, we will provide options for members to vote secretly online prior to the election.

You may be on the ballot for the virtual and in-person meeting without being in attendance; however, you will make the strongest impression if you attend the event and speak directly to our members.
