    Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

    My wife and I retired to Anna Maria Island ten years ago and after an extensive remodeling project on our home, I began to look for another area to devote some of my free time. I stopped by the Anna Maria Island Community Center and ended up having lunch with the Executive Director. She told me all about the programs offered at the community center and the critical need non-profit organizations have for volunteers. I decided this would be a great place to contribute my time. 

    I agreed to represent the community center on a joint program with the American Red Cross in Bradenton. Together we developed “AM I Ready”; a program to ensure island businesses, residents and visitors were prepared for hurricane season. The next opportunity for me was working with the board chairman and other volunteers to develop social media policies for employees and volunteers. Through these projects I learned more about the community center and began to appreciate the importance of the Center to the community.   

    The “Center” of Anna Maria Island is the community’s gathering place. A place for the community to come together and make friends. Our promise to the community is to create a family-friendly atmosphere that is safe, fun, and social. To offer healthy lifestyle programs and activities to all ages. To provide experiences that are welcoming and stimulating; and to be socially responsible members of the island community.

    This year we have made substantial progress in laying the “strategic foundation” for the future. We developed a 5-part financial strategy to diversify our revenue base and develop a sustainable financial model for the future. We re-branded the Center as the “community’s gathering place”, revised membership pricing, reduced and reorganized staff to better support program offerings, and improved relationships with municipal government officials.

    Our focus this year will be creating and implementing a development plan to increase private donations, recruiting new board members that fill a matrix of competencies needed to strengthen the board of directors, and prioritize “mission earned revenue”. Having paid off our mortgage obligation last year we need to build reserves to support center scholarships for island residents that are unable to afford center membership / activity fees. 

     

     
    Statement from the CEO/Executive Director

    With a significant investment of time and resources, the Board of Directors laid groundwork for the team at The Center to re-evaluate all aspects of it’s programs and operations, to achieve the goal of re-connecting to the diverse island community that we are thankful to be part of.

    We are working to rebuild confidence in The Center of Anna Maria Island. Historically, community centers across the world have been places where people would come together to play sports, exercise, dance, play games and learn. There is one important aspect involved; that people gathered to socialize, to see their friends, and possibly meet new ones…

    The new mission of The Center is to serve as a gathering place for the community to come together and make friends.

    This mission will serve as guiding principle in the work that we are doing. Furthermore, we have developed new brand promises, which will provide our team with clarity and direction to support the fulfillment of our mission. These brand promises provide informed direction for our strategies, programs, day-to-day decisions, and ultimately represent The Center to the greater community.

    As a child, I was fortunate to experience the benefits of a community center in the small fishing town where I grew up in Connecticut. With this in mind, I am proud to lead the team at The Center and have had great pleasure seeing it’s transformation over the past several months. This transformation will continue to evolve as we re-engage with the community through events like our Fish Fry, growing our volunteer program, experiencing excitement on our sports fields, and our classroom activities… the future is bright for The Center of Anna Maria!

    We are the processes of rebranding to provide a “new face” to The Center. We are changing the culture of how we operate to rebuild the community’s confidence in The Center after years of transitions. The challenges we face are communicating the changes, as well as the value and benefits of supporting the Center through membership and various means while reaching diverse audiences. The challenges are being address by having standard operating producers in place to provide consisting in all programs at The Center. A communication plan was developed and helped develop a structure for future use. We are also restructuring management to create a balance within all our programs.
