A welcome letter from Elena Kostakis, GBCA's new Membership and Development Manager

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I could not be more excited and honored to join the team at the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance (GBCA) as the Membership and Development Manager.

As an artist and arts administrator who’s lived and worked in Baltimore for over 10 years, I have enormous respect and admiration for all artists and arts organizations that make the Baltimore cultural scene vibrant, meaningful and exciting. My previous experiences as the Executive Director of Baltimore Theater Alliance and the Managing Director of the Strand Theater Company helped me gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by local artists. In my role at GBCA, I hope to use my knowledge and expertise for the benefit of the cultural community to provide needed support and to promote growth and development of all arts.

In the coming months I will reach out to you for candid input on the relevance and effectiveness of GBCA member services, as well as the potential areas where we can help you more. I am also very interested in hearing how you wish to be involved as a partner of GBCA, and to contribute your experience and resources for the benefit of the larger community. Let’s affect great change together!

I wish you all wonderful new seasons, great success in your work, and continued growth and advancement of all arts in the Greater Baltimore area.

Sincerely yours,

Elena Kostakis
Membership and Development Manager
Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance
