In a letter mailed to their membership, the meeting is announced to take place at 6:30 pm on the CCAC campus located at 334 Wichman street.

The letter also states after the slate is presented to the membership the floor will be open for nominations.

Members may also vote by proxy. A proxy voting ballot was also mailed to members of the CCAC.

The Colleton County Arts Council strives to promote appreciation of the arts by educating, exposing and inspiring the people in our community. Founded by a task force of community volunteers in 1993, the Arts Council was created to fill a void in the community of accessible arts opportunities and arts education for the public. After nearly two decades, the Arts Council has seen many changes in location, staff, availability of resources, and mission but has continued to consistently provide artistic opportunities in a variety of arts disciplines to the people of Colleton County. Settled into a new campus in historic downtown Walterboro, the Arts Council is excited to celebrate 25 years as Colleton County’s public source of artistic opportunities and continue to provide the best possible arts experiences for children and adults alike throughout Colleton County.
