Dean’s Message for Summer
This is a most unusual summer for all of us, but I hope that you are staying safe and well, and able to enjoy the beautiful sunshine and some time outdoors.
I am honored to be your Dean for 2020-2021 and am very much looking forward to working with our board members to create some exciting programs for this coming year.
I want to thank out-going Dean, Sr Jo Baim for her excellent leadership and tireless dedication to AGO this past year. She has served our chapter very well indeed. I also want to thank Susan Bloomfield and John Stuntebeck who have finished their terms on the board, those who are continuing, and to welcome new board members, Helen Congleton and Andrew Koch.
Previously we had hoped to hold an annual meeting in June where we would have officially installed the new officers, but due to the pandemic, that meeting has been postponed indefinitely. To keep current, please review the annual report that has been prepared by JoAn Andenes.
Though this is a challenging time for all of the performing arts, we can be grateful for the technology which allows us to view our national AGO OrganFest 2020. Following that model, we fully expect to offer a variety of new activities for our members including virtual concerts, webinars, and online meetings for chapter members.
As the new program year begins, I very much welcome your ideas and thoughts about the Guild.
Thank you and stay well!
Hannah Byun, Dean
