Steering Committee & Staff

Encore is guided by a Steering Committee of representatives who are members and have been elected by the full membership. This committee coordinates Encore activities like program offerings and instructors, oversees policy and procedures, and deals with particular issues. Each committee representative is eager to hear from members and to bring topics of interest and concern to the monthly meetings. The Steering Committee, listed below, is aided by the Encore Office Manager and Office Assistant who handle the day-to-day activities of the Encore office.
