PRESIDENT'S LETTER

 

I hope all of you will join me in wishing our beloved, long-time Administrative staff member, Arline Chambers, all the best as she retires from the organization. Arline has been with SAH/SCC since the early 2000s and has proven herself an invaluable team member for more than 20 years.

Prior to helping out with SAH/SCC, Arline enjoyed a long and storied career within the Southern California arts community in executive positions at Mark Taper Forum, Ahmanson Theatre, Los Angeles and San Francisco Civic Light Operas, Segerstrom Center for the Performing Arts, and Geffen Playhouse, among many other arts organizations.

She spent 11 hectic years with Walt Disney Imagineering, working as an Arts Management Specialist, where she developed and facilitated an international museum tour of theme park art and architecture, “The Architecture of Reassurance: Designing the Disney Theme Parks.”

Arline’s contribution to SAH/SCC reached far beyond picking up the mail, keeping track of event sign-ups, and helping us with the day-to-day administrative tasks. Arline provided the board with invaluable guidance on everything from her network of nonprofit specialists in law and accounting, to pushing us to fundraise for the development of our website some 15 years ago. It was Arline who encouraged us to move into the 21st century and conduct much of our business online. I count her as responsible for helping SAH/SCC remain lithe and viable throughout the past two decades.

Arline was a tireless presence at our lectures, tours, and events. And in her public-facing customer-service role she interacted with many of you on a regular basis.

A long-time resident of Los Angeles, Arline will now be moving to the San Diego area, where she will be closer to family. Please join the entire board in thanking her for her years of service and inspiration to the organization and in wishing her well in her retirement.

Arline, we will miss you! We hope that you will join us for our ongoing Zoom lectures and virtual programming. You will always be a member of the SAH/SCC family, as we are bestowing you a Life Membership.
