Special Spring Membership Meeting / and Meet the Director for the King and I!
If you have been involved in any DCP production in the last 5 years, then you are a member and we would dearly love to have you join us…(includes ushers, parents, etc). Also feel free to invite non-members. While they will not be able to vote for or serve on the board, we would love to get other people from around the community involved and excited about DCP.
What: Special membership meeting for the Dexter Community Players - includes pizza and crafts for kids!
When: Sunday, March 23, 2014 at 1:05 PM (lunch served at beginning)
Where: Dexter District Library Meeting Room (lower level), 3255 Alpine Street, Dexter
We will have a separate room where kids will engage in King and I themed crafts (with supervision from DCP members). We will also discuss the timing and plans for the King and I this summer (performance dates June 27,28,29).
This meeting will include a board election in accordance with our bylaws and constitution. If you are a member of DCP and are interested in getting more involved, please consider running for a position on the board. No experience necessary, just a willingness to propel our great organization forward! Feel free to contact the board at email@example.com if you have any questions about the meeting or becoming a new board member.
While not required, it would be helpful if you could let us know you are coming by either using this evite link or this Facebook event. This is just to plan for the appropriate amount of food. Please also encourage your friends or other DCP members you know to attend!
Hoping to see you there!
On November 17 we attempted to have an all membership meeting. I’m sorry to say that only 7 members attended. That was not enough to make quorum; we needed 10. As a result, there was officially no meeting, though those of us who did attend discussed wheat we thought it would take to get people involved. Because we did not have a quorum, we could not elect a board of directors. The previous board is continuing to act as the board for now, but we really must elect a new board. Some of the current board members wish to continue, and others do not, but those who do wish to continue need to be elected to their positions, and we do need some new members as even now we do not have a full 7 members due to recent resignations.
So how do we get DCP members to come to a membership meeting? I’ve seen that people will show up to get involved in a production, but not so much to handle the business behind the organization behind the productions, so here’s what I’m proposing.
We have scheduled a full membership meeting for January 19 at 2 PM at the Dexter District Library. If we can get at least 10 people to show up for this meeting, we will elect a new board of directors, possibly with some of the same people who are on it now, but that will be up to you. Possibly of greater interest to all of you is that the directors for our 2014 season of shows will be present at the meeting to discuss with you how you can get involved in their productions.
Let me just say that we have an exciting lineup of shows for this season.
The King and I
The Rocky Horror Show
Not only can you get involved right from the beginning, but get valuable advice on how to prepare for your audition if you would like to be on stage for either of those. You can also get involved as production staff, running crew, and more.
We have an exciting season planned but, and I want to stress this, it will not happen without you. Please join us.

I’m sorry to say that we must cancel our plans to produce “No Sex Please, We’re British”. We did not have enough people audition.
