The National Arts Club — based in New York City — recently announced the election of its newest president. Find out who’s taking over duties here!
After three active years as president of the illustrious National Arts Club, Chris Poe informed the organization that he would not entertain another nomination to retain his position. On May 19, the Board of Governors elected Linda Zagaria — an active member for more than 25 years — as the new president, effective immediately.
The Club writes, “Linda has served as a member and chair of the Roundtable, is a founder of the very popular Le Cocktail Français program, and served on the Music Committee as Secretary. Most recently, Linda has served as a co-chair of the Arts Program Committee and currently chairs the recently reconstituted and reactivated Kesselring Committee, all while serving our club as a Governor since 2012. Needless to say, we think Linda’s qualifications to lead The National Arts Club speak for themselves!
“In addition to her work in the governance and operations of our club, Linda brings us a wealth of knowledge and experience from other educational and not-for-profit organizations she has been associated with. In addition to teaching English and French for many years, she has served as Vice President & Secretary of the Art Deco Society of New York, and was a member of the Board of Directors for both the Omega Ensemble and the Beaux Arts Alliance, where she now holds the position of Executive Director. Linda is an active patron of the arts, supporting a number of organizations including a variety of museums and performance companies in our community, not the least of which has been the NAC.”
