The Oceanside Community Arts Council (OCAC) board says it is pleased to announce the hiring of an administrator for the McMillan Arts Center (MAC) operations.

In a news release, the board says Rhonda Roy will assume the position this week on a short-term contract to fulfill its immediate needs for a MAC operations administrator.  The board says Roy brings with her a wealth of computer skills, a breadth of knowledge in non-profit management, professional level business and administrative skills and a warm and welcoming personality. The board says it is looking forward to Roy bringing an atmosphere of professionalism and efficiency to the MAC.

In the news release, the board says that since it took on board duties on Nov. 25, it has heard time and time again that in order to meet the needs of members, artists and organizations a consistent presence at the MAC is crucial.

The board says Roy will take care of the day-to-day operations, ensure an efficient bookings procedure, be the go-to person for member inquiries and be a contact point for MAC related business in our communities.

During this time of transition, the board says its members and its newly-hired administrator will make rapid progress towards sustainable plans for the MAC and move forward with the OCAC’s other far-reaching goals for arts and culture in Oceanside.

The MAC will be open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  The MAC will be closed for the holidays from Dec. 22-Jan. 1.
