It’s Fall Already?

Where oh where did the summer go? In a flurry of hot days and fun festivals apparently. We’re excited to bring you the latest issue of The Salt Shaker. And, yes, we’re still here! Perhaps we took the decompressing thing a little too seriously for a little too long… But, we’re back! Even with a new look – one column now & bigger pictures – yay!

This issues is chock-full of fun things for you to discover within! Stories of Utah representing at Burning Man this year – completely awesome, of course! Important details about the 2014 Element 11 theme nomination process, upcoming BOD elections, and of course a recap of Decompression. A huge thank you to each of the contributing writers for this issue. Couldn’t have done it without you.

First, a quick update on BOD activities…

Beyond working hard on a fabulous Decompression + Fall Equinox event, the BOD has been actively working behind the scenes to get the ball rolling for 2014.

Some exciting evolutions are happening. We’ve started meeting monthly for BOD work sessions, we’re reorganizing a little to better balance responsibilities among the board members, we’ve re-thought the format of our Quarterly Community Meetings (more social, less meeting, more open forum for discussion & ideas), and we’re working with our Burning Man Regional Contact, Bobby Gittins, with some ideas to further encourage community feedback & communication.

The BOD looks forward to sharing details of these things & more at the upcoming Town Hall Social (previously known as Quarterly Community Meetings) on December 1, 2013 at 4pm. Utah Arts Alliance, 663 West 100 South, Salt Lake City, Utah 84104. See you there!

And, now for the fun. Enjoy!
