One June 4th and 5th, members of the KAEA board convened in Pittsburg for the annual board retreat. The board retreat is a day and a half long meeting where we set the budget and calendar for the coming fiscal year, find out more and tour facilities for the upcoming professional development conference, and go over goals for each board position.
The 2015 conference will be held at Pittsburg State University, which is undergoing some major renovations and additions right now! No worries, the construction will be completed before the conference. We toured the student center, the art department, and the new Bicknell Family Center for the Arts. Each building will be used for conference events.
Small theater at the Bicknell Center where the key-note address and awards ceremony will be held.
We were also honored to get to spend a little bit of time with Marjorie Schick, internationally recognized artist and professor at Pitt State for 48 years!
We had to pause for a group picture before we let her get back go work.
Serving on the KAEA board is a bit of work, but a lot of fun!
