OSA Board of Directors Meeting

Time: Monday, September 30, 2019 at 6:00

This new, later date (previously Sept 25) ensures as much time as possible is set aside for the Board to hear input and have discussion time prior to the vote on auditions.
We recognize that this is the second evening of Rosh Hashanah and, for those who observe this holiday, it is not ideal timing. Our Board Chair Elise Darwish will hold office hours at OSA from 3:00-5:00 on Tuesday October 1st for those who will be affected by the timing of the meeting and would like to call or stop in. Teachers will also have access to Ms. Darwish this week as she will be attending the weekly Professional Development that takes place each Wednesday afternoon.

Location: OSA Student Center
