Designated Delegate

  • In the event of an unavoidable scheduling conflict, the board member who will be absent must contact a former R2AC board member from their county to act as a voting member in the business meeting and grant review panel.

 

Community Panel Member

  • A former board member from any county may be asked to serve on a grant review panel if a current R2AC board member will be absent and an Designated Delegate from that board member’s county cannot be found to act as a replacement.
  • Past R2AC Artist Fellows or other expert artists in Region 2 may serve as Community Panel Members for the R2AC Artist Fellowship review.
  • If the R2AC board decides to split a grant review panel into two smaller panels because of the high volume of grant applications received, then a Community Panel Member will be asked to serve on each panel in addition to the board members.
