Beth Elliot Steps Down as MTS Board President

MTS President Beth Elliot has stepped down as President and member of the Board of Directors, effective immediately.

Ms. Elliot has asked the board to share her letter to the MTS community:

October, 2018

Dear Musical Theatre Southwest Family,

It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of my official resignation as President of the Board of Directors. Health issues prevent me from being able to carry out the duties of this position. It is essential that I step back so that the organization can move forward productively.

I sincerely hope that I have had a positive impact on this community. While I regret not being able to see the term through to the end, I take great comfort in knowing that your current Board of Directors are more than capable of taking MTS courageously forward.

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work alongside such remarkable people. Thank you for the privilege of serving this community.

Sincerely yours,
Beth Elliot

The Board of Directors would like to extend our thanks to Beth for her years of service on the Board and her guidance as President over the past nine months. Under her leadership, we have established a more community-based mechanism for selection of musicals for the upcoming season, provided open forums for the MTS community to discuss financial issues with the Board, enacted policies to promote personal safety in the theater and set up our #SaveMTS campaign to help us maintain financial sustainability. Her dedication has helped us to keep community in our community theater, and we are most grateful to her for her hard work.

The role of Board President will be filled for the remainder of Beth’s term by former Vice-President, Elizabeth Ponic. The new Vice-President is Aaron Howe.
