Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To install a new intercom system in the building to connect the sound/light control booth, the backstage area, and the dressing room area and to pay for our 2017 insurance policies for the building itself and an Errors and Omissions policy for our board members. The producer of each production reports to Prairie Wind Players' board of directors each month during the project, receiving approval for the budget, artistic personnel, and production issues. A post production final report is presented by the producer to Prairie Wind Players' Board for review as well. Individual shows are evaluated by the board as to audience appeal and satisfaction, and financial success through attendance reports and audience oral feedback. Prairie Wind Players' general membership meets at the Annual Meeting to review the season, elect board member and vote on any required decisions.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We put the intercom system to work as soon as it was installed and have used it for every production so far this season. We have also been able to maintain a strong seven member Board of Directors that is functioning smoothly thanks to the insurance policy.
