Results for Interview With An Artist

Search For The Best in People

 

  • During the October meeting of the Pocono Mountain Arts Council, we enjoyed an Appreciative Inquiry process. AI is a search for the best in people, their organization, and the world of opportunities.  

Strengths

It’s an inquiry into our strengths and possibilities so we can build for the future. On October 9th we interviewed one another about experiences with PMAC and dreams for the future. 

Your Thoughts

If you missed that "workshop," we still want to hear your thoughts on what gives life to our organization, and learn what you imagine could enhance the Council. Within the next couple weeks, a PMAC member will call you to set up a convenient time for a ten-minute telephone chat, your opportunity to share some experiences with the Council and hopes you may have for our organization. We want to hear from allmembers, so please answer the call. If you don’t get an interview by October 30, call Mary Ann Paulukonis at 570-586-5981.
