Replacement Board Vote


Some folks are wondering about the proxy vote process and how it works.

Originally, I had planned to send the Membership a list of those running for Board replacements; however, Katie reminded me that candidates cannot be officially nominated by the Membership until Thursday’s Annual meeting. 

The Board has recently adopted Robert’s Rules of Order as a procedural guide.  It would be a Point of Order violation to announce candidates BEFORE they have been officially nominated

If you would like to vote, but cannot attend the meeting, you will be able to vote by Proxy.  You may assign your vote to Anita Zaccardi (Board), Katie Pierce (Staff) or Wanda Gobbell (Member).  They will be able to vote for officially nominated candidates on your behalf.

We do need 10% of the Membership in attendance to conduct a vote.  Provy voters do not qualify as Members in attendance.

The following people have expressed interest in becoming Board members, but have not been formally nominated yet:  Sernobia McGee, Michelle Cano, John Crawford, Betty Bertrand, Jenny Orr and Chasity Lamb.

To express your interest, please contact Robert at TFAC@TullahomaFineArtsCenter

The Tullahoma Fine Arts Center is an ADA-compliant facility committed to the development of quality cultural experiences and education by providing access to and instruction in the Arts and Humanities, and influencing the direction of area visual, literary, performing and creative arts. TFAC, above all, encourages professionalism in the artistic community and among its artists and students, thereby raising standards of excellence in creativity, design and the production and practice of cultural craftsmanship. We promote the development of arts programming opportunities by offering classes, demonstrations, performances, publications and exhibitions. We are currently expanding our Member Gallery so that members may display and/or sell their original works -- creating unique marketing opportunities for them to reach local, regional and national audiences. We strive to increase public experience, understanding, appreciation and awareness of (as well as access to) the Arts and Humanities, especially in underserved and disenfranchised communities. TFAC seeks to strengthen our existing Regional Art Museum and lending library by encouraging donations of books, works of art and the endowment of funds to secure further permanent collections of both. We are actively exploring ways to assist area school systems with their Arts and Humanities curriculums, providing both extracurricular and co-curricular opportunities for gifted and talented students as well as for the academically and economically disadvantaged. Finally, we are firmly committed to partnering with civic organizations, other non-profits, city, county and state governments to compliment each another’s fields of expertise.
