The City Clerk’s Office Presents the Monthly Board Member Spotlight:
NICK LONG, AUDIT SERVICES OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE
Why would you encourage someone in the community to apply to be on a board, committee, or commission?
As a Durham resident, this is a unique opportunity to leverage your time and talent to serve your neighbors. You are able to advocate for change in areas of the community where you see the greatest need, and work alongside others who love this city.
What do you enjoy most about sersving on your particular board?
The Carolina Theatre is one of the cultural jewels of downtown Durham! It is a beautiful representation of a historic institution that has transformed through significant political, social, and economic change. We have a special needs brother, and one of my favorite summertime memories is going to movies with him at the Carolina Theatre. Not all spaces in the ever-expanding downtown Durham feel welcome to all or serve as a place we all feel ownership in. I hope through the service of our board, we can continue to make the Carolina Theatre a welcoming place of civic pride.
What is your favorite part about living in Durham?
The best thing about Durham is the people. Getting to live and work alongside diverse, caring, and generous people while always being in close proximity to delicious food is hard to beat!
