The Vive Les Arts Theatre in Killeen is accepting nominations for its new board of directors until 5 p.m. today.

Nominations must be turned into VLA’s box office, 3401 S. W.S. Young Drive.

VLA members will vote on the new board members at a 6 p.m. public meeting Aug. 15.

“We will vote to elect a board of directors from those that have been nominated and selected for election by the Nominating Committee,” the email said.

Theater officials could not provide the number of nominations by press time Monday because of scheduling, according to board member Stacie Dishon.

In a July meeting, a majority of board members said they could not commit to another season because of its financial situation. Then, seven executive board members resigned.

Vice Chairman Nancy Hennigan, Vice Chairman Diane Connell, Advisory Committee Chairman Cyd West, Treasurers Scott Shine and Hilary Shine, and past chairmen Leslie and John Gilmore signed a letter of resignation after that and explained their decision to close the theater.

Chairman Summer Heidtbrink, George Dishon and Stacie Dishon are the only executive board members left.

According to the VLA bylaws, the executive board has the authority to make decisions on behalf of the board of directors. Any nonbudgeted expense over $2,500 must have approval of the executive board, and any expenditure over $5,000 must be approved by the board of directors.
