The public is invited to participate in a facilitated community conversation regarding the future operation of the Clatsop Community College Performing Arts Center (PAC) and Partners for the PAC. This visioning session is scheduled for Monday, March 4, 5:30pm – 7:30pm at the CCC Performing Arts Center, 16th and Franklin. Light refreshments will be provided. A goal of the project is to develop a sustainable structure and business plan that will ensure the future of the PAC as a community-wide asset.
Through a grant provided by The Ford Family Foundation, Clatsop Community College, the CCC Foundation and Partners for the PAC (a consortium of local cultural organizations) will collaborate to determine the feasibility of continuing operation of the PAC as an affordable space for cultural and educational programs. Organizational options for the Partners for the PAC and a sustainable fundraising plan will be explored.

Ms. Jaworski is the principal in Write to Know, providing support to non-profit organizations. She has an extensive background in non-profit management, strategy and leadership, and previously served as Executive Director of the Oregon-based Rural Development Initiatives and as president of the Nonprofit Association of Oregon.
