The City of Santa Monica invites community members and professional experts to fill positions on the Civic Working Group (CWG) and its Technical Advisory Subcommittee (Subcommittee), a body that will convene a community process and serve in an advisory capacity to Council regarding the future of the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.  

“Everybody has a wonderful story to share about the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium — whether it’s the place they saw their first concert or first realized the power of playing music in front of audience,” said Jessica Cusick, the City’s Cultural Affairs Manager. “Santa Monica is home to a broad array of creative professionals, we hope a large number of them will be inspired to help shape the future of the fabled Civic.”

• Members of the CWG are preferred, but not required, to be Santa Monica residents; or to maintain a business in the City, or to be employed in Santa Monica. Members of the Technical Advisory Subcommittee are exempt from residency requirements.
