It is officially Fall! With changing seasons and tides, we are flooded with opportunities from outside organizations. Be sure to check out the job postings at the end of this email in addition to the special EAP invitation to attend the National Arts Marketing, Development and Ticketing Conference. More details can be found below.

In other news, EAP/SFBA is embarking on a new learning journey with the support of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and we will conduct an organization assessment focused on our leadership structure and processes over the next few months. We are excited to work with two local consultants, Vanessa Camarena-Arredondo and Yesenia Sanchez. Our aim is to share the process and learnings along the way and to reach out for your input as we move forward. 

Lastly, we want to send a big hugging "Thank You!" to all those who attended the Network Social last Thursday at Red Poppy Art House. We had a great evening and the house was full until the very end. It was great to catch the buzz on new projects, transforming endeavors and daring ventures with folks art practices! A great time was had by all, and it was lovely to see you all, whether in person or in spirit. 

In gratitude,
Lauren Benetua, EAP Jolly Good Fellow
