Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

More Minnesotans, especially those in the Southwest Minnesota Region, will be able to participate in the arts.We will know how many people are involved by comparing our printed programs and rosters. We are able to track hits on our website by logging in. We will be able to track ages of participants because they will fill out an audition form.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We decided to add more board members due to the fact that most of the responsibilities fell on a small number of people. We also discussed the lack of local coverage from our newspaper. For our next production we assigned a board member to meet with our local newspaper face-to-face to discuss this issue.
