*RAMP: Responsible Acceleration of Maintenance and Partnerships is a short-term funding program whereby CDOT is funding multi-year projects based on year of expenditure rather than saving for the full amount of a project before construction begins. Partnership project funding was applied for and matched by local agencies to accelerate priority projects in the agencies’ local areas. RAMP projects may see funding from 2015 through 2017. See details at http://www.coloradodot.info/programs/RAMP.
Boys & Girls Club of Chaffee County Seeks Professional Videographer
The members of the Public Relations and Marketing Committee of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Chaffee County are seeking a professional artistic videographer to create a three to four minute video for their nonprofit nationally recognized organization. The goal of the project is to produce a video that captures with emotional artistry the activities and impact of the Clubs. Board members will use the video to connect the Clubs with supporters, families and friends. Firm deadline for project completion is August 31, with a possibility of establishing an ongoing relationship and further projects on an annual basis with the BGCCC.
Committee members will accept proposals until Friday, March 10. Submissions should include video samples of work, cost proposal for the project, three professional references and three personal references (either via letter form or contact information) and a 100-word statement about the artist’s interest in the project. Finalists will be invited to present their proposal to board members at their Wednesday, March 22 meeting in Salida and final approval of a videographer will be subject to a background check.
Financial supporters for this project are also needed. For more information or to submit a proposal please contact Executive Director Brian Beaulieu at 719-539-9500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
