Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. Increase the number of performing opportunities within existing programs by 20% within five years. 2. Within three years, present five special presentations annually from our team of ten “elder statesmen” that focus on history, culture, and traditions. 3. Develop one new interactive activity at each of our annual festivals within three years. 4. Within three years, increase the number of events in our promotional support program to twenty or more annually. Use performance evaluations.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We developed five new interactive activities at festivals. At Jam With The Bands, participants got to play their instruments along with a performing band. At the Ukulele Workshop and Jam, participants tried out instruments, learned how to play, and took part in a jam session. With the Draw Band Competition, performers put their names in a hat and instruments were drawn to form a band. Theme Jams produced sessions with songs chosen on a theme. We met a goal to increase the number of volunteers on the active list by 20%, adding seventy-two new volunteers to the previous year's list of 366. We enrolled thirty events in our promotional support program.
