Candidate Statement: 
My name is Sara Ramos and I have loved all of my years working at PSP. I have found very few places that have made me feel as welcomed and useful as PSP does, and I want to do everything I can to help everybody who walks in those doors feel that same feeling.

I hope that the Membership of Pacifica Spindrift Players are happy with the year long term I have served and vote for me to continue to serve the theater.

A. How have you been involved with PSP in the past?

I have been involved PSP for over 10 years in various roles backstage. I have primarily served as stage manager for numerous productions.

I have also served as the Secretary/Parliamentarian of the Executive Board for the last year.

B. Have you been part of a board/committee/leadership group in the past? If so, explain what role you played.

I was in leadership positions throughout high school and college as well serving on the PSP board for the last year.

C. Which position(s) listed in the PSP Bylaws are you interested in serving as? For each position listed, explain your qualifications/skills that lend themselves to that position.

I am most interested in continuing to serve as Secretary/Parliamentarian. I feel like I made great progress in learning the role and trying to make it as helpful and efficient as possible, but I also feel as though there is a lot I can still do to try to contribute to the theater, and I feel that my organizational skills are best suited for this role.

D. If elected, what goals do you have for your time on the PSP board?

My goal is to continue working toward more consistent and efficient communication and organization. I also hope to have a more streamlined and clear set of procedures for the role of Secretary if I am able to serve another term.

I also want to work toward a better relationship with SSPA by serving as a reliable liason between the school and PSP and creating a system of communication between the two parties that will be able to be easily passed down to any predecessors on the board.

Candidate Statement: 

As VP of Sales for PSP’s board, I will work closely with the VPs of Marketing and Membership/Volunteers to tailor specific sales goals and strategies with the current talent base at PSP and where a “pipeline” of talent externally may need work, and with the VP of Finance in analyzing historical data on ticket sales vs. types of shows performed in order to accurately project upcoming ticket revenues. I will also work closely with the box office manager to ensure ticket sales are done as effortlessly as possible for our audience members.

A. How have you been involved with PSP in the past?

I played Tulsa in PSP’s Winter 2017-18 production of Gypsy, and Reverend John Hale in PSP’s subsequent production, The Crucible. I am currently directing PSP’s next show, My Fair Lady.

B. Have you been part of a board/committee/leadership group in the past? If so, explain what role you played.

In college, at Southern Oregon University, I was the Treasurer for the SOU chapter of the Music Educators National Conference (MENC, now NAFME: National Association for Music Education). In this role, I acted as representative to the SOU Inter-Club Council, which distributed funding among the university’s different associations and clubs. In 9th grade, I was also the president of the Emerson Jr. High Drama Club.

C. Which position(s) listed in the PSP Bylaws are you interested in serving as? For each position listed, explain your qualifications/skills that lend themselves to that position.

I am interested in running for VP of Sales. My full-time job is underwriting commercial insurance, which is essentially a sales job. Aside from analyzing a business’ risks to determine its biggest liability concerns, finding success in any opportunity comes down to timely and tactful communication, both inside and outside of the organization.

D. If elected, what goals do you have for your time on the PSP board?

My goal is to increase ticket sales. This will require an assessment of PSP’s existing base of season-ticket holders and marketing efforts. My stance is that effective recruiting for talent is a boon to the health and growth of any organization. Reaching out and establishing/improving relationships with external organizations (such as online forums for actors, musicians, tech/stage hands, Theatre Bay Area, other theatre companies, etc.) will act as a valuable resource to PSP.
