Message from Your President – Jo Richardson

 

 

Last month we reached out to you, our members, to help us make some big decisions about the future of the Boulder Art Association.  First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who was able to make it to the member meeting, and those of you who passed along your ideas via phone or email; we received a lot of great input and support.

This member support has made it possible for us to begin envisioning a new future for the Boulder Art Association; and I’m excited to be able to spearhead this new direction as your new President.

Thank You to our Volunteers!
