FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre accepting applications for board members

The FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre is inviting community members to apply to join the board.

Council approved transitioning the operational control of the PAC to a new municipal service board meant to promote, develop, and encourage performing arts in St. Catharines.

The board will be made up of seven to nine members including two people from council, two people appointed by Brock University, and three to five citizens.

To be eligible residents must be 18 years of age or older, live or own land in St. Catharines, and be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

Applications can be submitted through the city's website until Thursday, August 16.
