The board and staff of Arts Upper Hunter thanked Ivan Skaines, our outgoing Chair and Board Member, at the March meeting. Ivan joined the Board in 2018, was appointed as Deputy Chair in 2020 and Chair in 2021. Ivan has had a long association with AUH. He was even Acting Executive Director for 3 months in 2010. “His warmth and passion for the arts have been inspirational”, according to ED John O’Brien.
Robert Booth is now Acting Chair until the board meets later this month for the AGM.
We are looking for Board members. AUH Board members serve a fixed term of 4 years and can return to the board after a 12 month break. Arts Upper Hunter is currently seeking new board members so if you would like some information please contact John O’Brien on 0409 382 509 or via firstname.lastname@example.org
