On January 15th, the board of directors (B o D) of Twice Upon a Time held the first meeting for 2017. There are many familiar faces are around the table who bring a significant amount of continuity and depth of knowledge about our programs. Two new board members have joined our eager team; Ranya is our new Treasurer and Jennifer L is our new Lead of Communications and Marketing. We welcome them both.

Our B o D meets ten times a year to discuss projects, operations, and finance. We often follow the meeting with a “sorting party” to organise new acquisitions and ensure they are distributed to our locations. You can see a box of books in the foreground of the photo that is waiting to be sorted!
