ABOUT THE PARKER CULTURAL AND SCIENTIFIC COMMISSION
As representatives of the community, PCSC members act as the Town’s primary cultural and scientific advisory body. Members draw on their talents, experiences and interests in science and culture to review, advise, participate in and support the Town’s Cultural Vision, Strategic Plan and Initiatives. Members have the opportunity to serve on various PCSC Committees (Finance, Art in Public Places, Education), to assist in grant requests, facilitate public input and foster public and private partnerships. The Commission is an active, exciting and engaging group of members from all walks of life sharing a common desire to create opportunities for scientific, cultural and art experiences for Parker citizens and visitors. Profiles of current PCSC commissioners and minutes from previous PCSC meetings can be found at www.ParkerArts.org.
Commissioners are appointed by the Town Council to serve two-year terms and are expected to attend and contribute to bi-monthly PCSC meetings. Commission members must abide by a conflict of interest policy, which prohibits members from pursuing employment or paid contracting as a staff member, instructor, performer or other service provider with the PACE Center or other Cultural Department programs.
