We’d like to thank everyone who submitted applications for a Lead position for POrtalBurn 2017. We’re so thrilled about all the awesome people who will become part of the leadership team! Next weekend while at retreat the BOD will finalize all positions and announce them all shortly thereafter. Because Art is such a core part of our burn, and we all win by giving Artists as much lead time as possible to work on their projects, we decided to select the Art Lead early so she can get that ball rolling! Please congratulate Debi ‘Crackerjack’ Mansour for being selected as our Art Lead again this year. Crackerjack did an amazing job as Art Lead for POrtal16, and knocked it out of the park organizing the regional Burnal Equinox: Bullieve event. We can’t wait to see what she does with our Art Department this year! Please show her some POrtal love and let’s start making art!
