Pat McInerney - Member "At Large"
Pat's Personal Statement
The most important part of our mission is to encourage community involvement in the creative theater process. I love when I hear people describe PWLT as their theater home. As a board member, I will always work to make sure that PWLT maintains an inclusive, diverse, and accepting environment. I treasure the friends I have made over the last 20 years with PWLT. This connection to the creative community, I believe, is one of the greatest things PWLT has to offer. As a board member, I will always encourage new people to join us. Participation in our productions can be hard work, but should also be fun. After all, we are all amateurs. Fun and friends are how we are “paid”.
As property manager for PWLT, I take seriously, my role in fostering the resources of our company. I have seen PWLT grow and progress over the years. It’s important to me that this continue, even as we encounter tough times for live performance. The fun and creativity will continue and I relish having a role in that.
