New ATA Board Members Announced

From Glenn McClure, Board Chair, The Association of Teaching Artists

I am proud to announce the new class of the Board of Directors of the Association of Teaching Artists!

Tina Lapadulla- Arts Corps of Seattle, Washington

Jeanette McCune- Kennedy Center, Washington DC

Godfrey Simmons- EPIC Theater in NYC

We have not only have added some top-notch talent to the Board, but we have also expanded the Board's membership to include a vital national perspective that is vital to our current services. Though ATA was born with a small band of Teaching Artists in New York State eleven years ago, we reach Teaching Artists across the nation.

Our listserv, the resources on our web site, Facebook, and the blog reach beyond US Borders to include teaching artists in Italy, Belgium, Pakistan, Australia, and more. ATA's new class of board members represents the leadership necessary for ATA to continue to expand and support the needs of our burgeoning profession.

Continue to let us know what you are thinking and keep sending entries for the listserv. We continue to build this profession together with Teaching Artists and those who support them in every corner of the world. I look forward to seeing what we can build together in the coming years!

All the best,

Glenn McClure
Board Chair
The Association of Teaching Artists
