"Eric Hormel has been a highly engaged and committed Board member of the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) for a full term of 6 years. We will be sad to lose him at the end of June. Eric sits on the Executive Committee in his role as Board Secretary and also the Finance and Audit Committee and even manages to get to meetings in the heat of tax time! He has been instrumental in connecting us to younger CPA’s in his firm who are eager to follow his lead in community arts advocacy and leadership. Eric also sees the bigger picture of RACC’s offerings and programs and, in a desire to learn about Public Art, he visited the Public Art Advisory Committee for several months running and reported out what he had learned to his fellow Board members. We will appreciate his wisdom, positive outlook and considerable abilities with all things finance – what every non-profit needs! Thank you Eric."
