Swan Valley Member Passing

The Board of ACT Manitoba is saddened by the death of former Swan Valley Players and ACT Manitoba board member, Caren Dundas.  Caren was an integral member of the Swan Valley troupe for many years holding several executive positions as well and acting and directing.  Caren joined the Board of ACT Manitoba in 2008 immediately taking on the role of Treasurer.  She held the position until 2016, when she then decided to instead serve as a Regional Representative for two years, as she once put it, "To get out from behind the books and actually enjoy the performances!"  She will be missed.

ACT MB Common Forms and Documents - NEW MENU OPTION

As previously posted, the Board adopted Dropbox as it’s primary archival system for storing copies of all of ACT’s electronic documents.  By maintaining and accessing the documents online, the Board hopes to eliminate carrying and distributing binders of information and years of archival documents, while still providing the most recent versions of items to those that need them.  You can now view the folder of documents under the SERVICES / FORMS & DOCUMENTS tab on the menu above or the previously provided link at ACT MB Common Forms & Documents.
