The Desert Theatre League invites all of its members, and anyone who would like to be a member, to attend the Annual General Membership Meeting, which will be held on Monday, May 6, 2013, beginning at 7:00 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Desert, 72425 Via Vail, Rancho Mirage, California 92270.
One of the items to be discussed at this year’s meeting is correcting the spelling of the word “Theater” in the corporate name, so that it correctly is spelled “Theatre”. Although the Desert Theatre League has always spelled "Theatre" with the "re" spelling, due to an error in the original filing of the Articles of Incorporation, the corporate name has always been misspelled. We are now attempting to correct this error, which requires an official name change with the California Secretary of State. To officially change the name of the Desert Theatre League (even just to correct a spelling error), we must hold a vote of the general membership to approve the change.
Additionally, the DTL Board of Directors has several vacancies, due to one member moving out of the area and two others who must come off the Board this year, due to requirements of the Bylaws. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a Board Member, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with the names you would like to put into consideration. The general membership will vote on all candidates at the time of the Annual Meeting.
