Interview: why I joined the AXIS Dance Company Board

In 2008 I joined a Taproot Foundation team of marketing professionals to create a brochure for AXIS Dance Company. Little did I know then that it would be the start of a great working relationship, both as a volunteer donating my time and skills to help with various marketing campaigns, and later, as a board member.

Earlier this week AXIS posted an interview with me about why I joined the board. I hope it inspires people to volunteer their own time and professional skills to support an arts organization in their communities.

And if your community happens to be here in the Bay Area, perhaps you’ll be moved to apply to join the AXIS board—we’re excited to be working to recruit new board members this fall.

Please share the AXIS posts with your friends and colleagues who might be interested in this great professional opportunity to make a difference in supporting the arts right here in Oakland, and feel free to ask me more about AXIS in the comments.
