When are elections?
Elections are held & ballots are counted at our annual picnic.
Join us on Friday, July 14, 2023 at 6PM at Pottawatomie Park in Grand Haven.
How many director positions are on the ballot?
We will elect 3 directors for the 2023-2026 (3 year) term, 1 director for the 2023-2025 (2 year) term and 1 director for the 2023-2024 (1 year) term.
How long is a director’s term?
3 years (July 2023 – June 2026)
We have two board members leaving before the end of their current terms; one of the elected board members will serve a 2 year term. The directors with the shorter term will be decided among the Board of Directors.
Are there any pre-qualifications for directors?
The only requirement is that nominees must be active members at the time of the election.
They 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. We especially welcome individuals with backgrounds in customer service, accounting, legal, grant-writing, and marketing.
