Atlanta, GA: Kamini Anand was among seven John’s Creek residents appointed by Mayor Mike Bodker recently to the city’s inaugural Arts and Culture board.
Kamini, a registered architect by profession, has been living in Johns Creek for over nine years with her husband, and two children. Kamini has been serving the community as an active volunteer in the Lake Windward Elementary PTA Board & LSAC committees, and on the Home Owners Association of her neighborhood as president & architectural committee member.
The Arts and Culture Board promotes the arts by making recommendations to the Mayor and City Council about enriching the city’s cultural scene. The board advocates for the arts as well as studies and makes quarterly recommendations to the City Council about policies and proposed programs or artwork in Johns Creek.
“As a member of the board, I will be a part of the seven member committee that advises the Mayor & City Council in matters of art and culture in the city of Johns Creek,” said Kamini in an email interview with NRI Pulse. “As an art enthusiast, and being an architect by profession, I believe that I can add value to the board. It is important for me to consider all forms of art that reflect and represent the vibrant community of Johns Creek.
“At the end of the day, this is an opportunity for me to give back to the community which has been my home for the last decade,” she added.
The other inaugural board members are Kirk Wilson, Deanna Maust, Brigid Yeager, Jacquie Tracy, Rae Prall and Ron Cioffi.
“We welcome these board members and thank them for their eagerness to enhance their community,” said Mayor Mike Bodker. “The arts, in all forms, are not only a catalyst for economic development and sustainability; they are an integral part of our future plans in Johns Creek and vital to our quality of life.”
Each board member is appointed to a 2-year term and may serve consecutive terms.
