Dear Friends of CAPA,
After many years of board service, I have the humbling honor and privilege to be nominated to serve as CAPA’s board chair. Over the years, I’ve seen the continued growth of CAPA and its impact on our community. Understanding the importance access to the arts had on my own life, exposing a shy kid to a world outside of her own, and now as a business leader in Columbus, I know the arts are critical to the fabric of the community. CAPA’s growth as an arts leader and collaborator, as well as a driver of significant economic impact to this vibrant community, continues to drive my passion to serve this dynamic organization.
On behalf of the board, it is with sincere gratitude I thank the dedicated and talented CAPA team, our steadfast volunteers, and our exceedingly generous donors and patrons. While a mere thank you doesn’t seem sufficient, considering the extraordinary efforts you have all made during these unprecedented times, it is nevertheless important to say and to say often. So, thank you, thank you all! CAPA is poised to emerge successfully from the extraordinary challenges of the last year and to continue building on the foundation of our mission— to enrich lives by cultivating and nurturing the arts, spreading an appreciation that can be felt in hearts, minds, and the economy of our communities.
Whether through the lens of board chair or board member, our communities need the arts now more than ever and I am extremely excited to continue the fantastic work already in motion. Just as the house lights shine bright, the future is even brighter for CAPA and the arts in this community.
