This meeting is open to the public, but any new member must join at least three weeks prior (July 19, 2016) in order to be eligible to cast a vote. Read below for the proposed Board slate.

Volunteer Appreciation BBQ

Each year, PAAM depends on its squad of hundreds of volunteers to execute our year-round exhibition and cultural programming. As a token of our appreciation, volunteers are invited to a Farland-catered BBQ immediately following the Members Annual Meeting. A list of our volunteers is published here. Those who haven’t volunteered for us in the past year are welcome to join us at the BBQ, admission is $10.
