MEMBERSHIP and ACT-CO


SOME THOUGHTS...
An organization 's membership culture DEFINES the organization.  If every participant in the organization's activities does not feel deeply that they are a part of something that they want to suceed, and that they are willing to work to the best of their ability to help make the organization suceed, then the membership culture has failed... and the organization will fail.  If it fails, you'll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.

ACT-CO is an organization whose members are Community Theatre Groups.  We suggest that your Group might want to consider nominating one or more of your members for a position on the ACT-CO Board.  If you visit here you will see whether or not your group has not been represented on the Board in any of the last 10 years.  If you consider ACT-CO membership to be of some benefit to your Group, you should strongly consider that you need to participate in the ongoing administration of the Association: with membership comes benefits AND responsibility.

IT IS EXPECTED THAT ALL MEMBER GROUPS WILL PARTICIPATE FULLY IN THE ACTIVITIES OF ACT-CO, INCLUDING HAVING ONE OR MORE OF ITS MEMBERS ON THE ACT-CO BOARD FROM TIME-TO-TIME. (A rule of thumb would be that your Group should be be represented at least one year in any five-year period.)

It is realized fully that as busy theatre artists in your own Group you may claim that you have no time for ACT-CO administration. But if your Group seeks some benefit from ACT-CO membership, someone in your Group has to find the time for ACT-CO else there will be no ACT-CO.  All who are on the ACT-CO Board now, and all who have been on the Board in the past, have given up a lot of the time they would normally devote to their home Group in order to benefit all Groups and community theatre in general.

It is worth noting that over the years it is almost a given that ACT-CO Board members are also the people who are most active in their home Groups (usually on the Board of that Group). As Groups become more and more difficult to sustain, fewer and fewer are willing to do both the heavy lifting in their own Group and the heavy lifting for the benefit of everyone.  MEMBERS OF ACT-CO ARE URGED TO SEEK OUT INDIVIDUALS IN THEIR GROUP WHO CAN SERVE ON THE ACT-CO BOARD IN AN ACTIVE WAY.

Click here for a chart showing Board membership by Group.

Anyone interested in serving on the ACT-CO Board should contact the ACT-CO President at actcopresident@actco.ca

MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL 2014/2015


ATTN. ACT-CO GROUP MEMBERS: Your 2013/2014 ACT-CO Membership will expire on August 31, 2014.


It's time to think about renewing for the 2014/2015 Season. (If you've already renewed, you may stop reading.)  If you renew before July 31st, you pay $60.00. If you renew after August 1st, it's $75.00. To renew, visit Join Us, then click on the "Renewal Form - Groups". Complete the renewal form. Fill it in and submit it: online is best, but you can fill it in, print it and mail it if you really must!. Either way, you have to mail the cheque (we don't have online payment).

Note to Treasurers Make cheques payable to "ACT-CO". Please do not make cheques payable to any other version of the payee; the bank gets cranky if the payee is not the correct name of our account. Do not combine your membership cheque with any other payment.  REMEMBER: If your Group plans to enter 2014/2014 Festival, YOUR GROUP MUST BE A PAID-UP MEMBER BEFORE YOUR FESTIVAL APPLICATION WILL BE ACCEPTED.

IMPORTANT: Please supply ACT-CO with one, two, or three (three is best) authorized contact names, phone numbers, and email addresses. These contacts are the only way ACT-CO will communicate with your Group regarding ACT-CO official business. We do not communicate directly with your members regarding official business (such as Festival Entry, Membership Renewal, etc); however, we do communicate directly with your members via our ACTION NEWS e-Newsletter.
