The North Central Louisiana Arts Council invites you to our Annual Meeting and Holiday Party on Tuesday, January 13 at 6pm at the Dixie Center for the Arts (212 N Vienna, Ruston.) This annual gathering will include a report on 2014 activities as well as plans and projections for 2015. In addition, President’s Awards will be presented to community members in categories that include Patron of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Board Member of the Year and Artist of the Year. If you’re curious about the work that NCLAC does throughout the year, the Annual Meeting is a great opportunity to check it out first hand… and to celebrate another year with arts enthusiasts.

The event is also a perfect opportunity to view the new Dixie Center Lobby exhibition: works by Sheila Trevillion Jennings of Jackson Parish. Sheila will be displaying her watercolor animal works until March 30.

NCLAC re-evaluated our membership campaign this year, and we are pleased to announce that we have 40 more members than we had last year. This is great news, as we view membership as a reflection of the community’s confidence in our programming, as well as a source of funding that helps continue our mission. If you would like to become a NCLAC member, it’s not too late! Visit us here and you can find our membership form and a paypal link to donate online. Of course you’re always welcome to stop by our office at the Dixie Center for the Arts to fill out a form in person.

In addition to membership, we always welcome donations of time, as volunteers are essential to the workings of any nonprofit. Sign up to be a volunteer and we’ll notify you via email when opportunities arise. Volunteer jobs can include phone calls, mailing, special events, filing, etc.

Many of you are interested in tax-deductible donations at the year’s end, and donations to NCLAC are included in this category. Individuals and businesses can donate to specific programs, or to our organization in general. We appreciate the help of donors, as we do not receive monetary support from the city, and our state support is very limited. Donations can be mailed to our post office box, dropped off through the mail slot at the Dixie Center, or made online here.

Our office wishes you all a joyous holiday season. It’s our wish that you’re able to celebrate this time of year with those you love. We thank you for your continued support and interest in our work.
