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 succeed, and that they are willing to work to the best of their ability to help make the organization succeed, 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 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
