* Special Announcement *

(We hope everyone is doing well and staying safe during these hard times) 


It is with mixed emotions we are making this announcement. After running NAC for 14 years, the Directors are ready to retire and step down from their positions. Other members of the NAC Board have also decided to step down as well.

"NAC is thrilled to have brought so many art and music events to the community." 

In late 2019 we began to reach out to the Huntington Arts Council, Art League of Long Island, Northport Historical Society, Northport/East Northport Public Library, retired teachers associations and also to all our present Program Coordinators and Advisory Board members. We now want to let the community know.  

If anyone is interested in starting up a new NAC Board* and taking on the Director position, please contact us at nacnewsletter@gmail.com Thank you. 


*The NAC Board vacancies: Executive Director, Treasurer, Membership, Public Relations, Community Outreach and Community Liaison. These positions are essential in keeping NAC running and are all voluntary positions.
