FolkMADS Board of Directors Call for Application

Dear FolkMADS Community Members,

Are you interested in helping our community? Would you consider serving on the Board of Directors to help our organization keep doing the great things we’re doing?

We would like volunteers to come forward and help FolkMADS continue through the next two years! We are electing at most six people to serve on the board for two year terms, beginning in January of 2018 and continuing through December 2019.

Submit your statement of candidacy by Nov 11th @ midnight! Note that you must be a member of FolkMADS to serve on the Board.

Let’s thank our board members who have completed their two-year terms:

  • Angela Welford
  • Lisa Bertelli
  • Lucy Frey
  • Sol Lederman
And let’s also recognize those who are continuing on the board through December 2018:
  • Bruce Thomson
  • Clara Byom
  • Emily Ruch
  • Erik Erhardt
  • Nancy Ford

Please let any of us know if you have any questions about giving back to our community by serving on the Board.


Sol Lederman
FolkMADS President
