MID MICHIGAN FAMILY THEATRE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
 
The MMFT Board of Directors holds monthly board meetings which are open to those involved/interested in the theatre.  We have recently changed the day and time of our meetings in order to allow representatives from the Alfreda Schmidt Southside Community Center to attend.  The meetings will be on the first Tuesday of each month at 5:30-6:30 pm before practice unless there is no practice or there is a conflict.  Changes will usually be posted on Facebook.  Regular attendees receive email notification of schedule changes.

2012/2013 - Season 5

In December, YAB had a fundraiser and from the collected money we were able to fund two full scholarships to attend MMFT’s classes. YAB members were present during all meetings of the MMFT Board, where we could share our suggestions and opinions for improving website, using different media to promote MMFT, choosing plays for productions.  We had nice meetings, some with pizza!


2013/2014 – Season 6

Main goal for the Season 6 is to make MMFT and YAB more visible in the community. We are currently exploring ideas and possibilities to do it. Soon we will start preparations for our annual fundraiser.
