BURNSVILLE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER ADVISORY BOARD
STATEMENT OF INTEREST
Please attach a resume.
1. Why do you want to serve on this Board?
This requires a story: A few years ago our young adults left home within a week of each
other. I was in a full crisis. What was I to do? Well I rented the Lakeville Area Arts Center
and hired Susan Vass to present a comedy about the empty-nest. I spent my free time
promoting and emailing Susan. We exchanged witty emails back and forth and I had a blast.
The $3500 in profits went to CAC, now 360 Communities. I want to have that kind of fun
again. I also see the BPAC as a great resource and am interested in being involved in
making it a treasured part of what residents see as their community, whether that be an art
show, a comedy act, a theatrical play or maybe presentations on the many facets of living life
today and living it more fully.
2. Tell about your experiences and how your greatest strength will contribute to this Board.
I started my work experience in Burnsville in 1979 (best guess) with a position of selling
classified ads for the Current Newspaper. I had the pleasure of working with the ladies who
started Burnsville’s first community newspaper. I was selected to start a new venture for the
paper. My new title, Promotional Director, came with the responsibility of creating Special
Sections and the trade shows that often accompanied them. I was in that job when the paper
was sold to Sun Newspapers.
Uncertain of the future of that position, I accepted a job offer from the Burnsville Chamber of
Commerce. I again organized trade shows, managed committees, wrote press releases and
promoted the Chamber, organized membership drives and assumed additional duties during
absences of a Director. In 1986 my husband the inventor, started a new business and I was
all he could afford so I left the job to start my own business experience. We started a family
at the same time so it was a busy decade and a half. My talent for taking a no-name product
to the Xerox of drum sanders surprised even me When we sold the company we received
twice the price because of the value of the name we had created in the industry. You can
now find the Performax name on machinery in Menards and Lowes as it has continued to
attract loyal customers.
I started a relationship with SCORE, an organization that helps entrepreneurs, during our
Performax years. I organized and promoted seminars and managed the classes we offered
through the community ed programs of the three surrounding school districts. After the sale
of our business in 1999, I continued with SCORE, including co-chairing the Burnsville
Chapter until winter departures took us away.
I was also promoting the western art of Earl Bascom. I wrote all the copy for the website and
designed the ads to re-launch the sculptures of this cowboy of cowboy artists. I love western
Page 3 of 4
art and hope to see it come to the Midwest as I think it would have a great following. We
showed the art at CAC’s art festival during the Jazz Festival some years ago. I also love
photography and have taken hundreds of landscape photos during our winter stays in
Sedona, AZ.
We are once again starting a new business, this time to launch a product line into the auto
aftermarket industry and a son and nephew into the working world. Once again I am
marketing and selling but my motivation is to be back in the community and being of service.
I think that my greatest strength is my history with this community (which I apologize for
being so wordy about) and my talents in the area of marketing and promotion.

fan of the Burnsville Jaycees.

BURNSVILLE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER ADVISORY BOARD
STATEMENT OF INTEREST
Please attach a resume.
1. Why do you want to serve on this Board?
As a new resident I would like to be more involved in my community. Our Performing Arts
Center is a beautiful community resource and needs people with innovative ideas to help
facilitate interest. Our Center houses 1,000 (I believe) the Guthrie 1,298. There is no reason
we should not be turning a profit if we are booking appropriate productions.
2. Tell about your experiences and how your greatest strength will contribute to this Board.
I am a Theater Evaluator for the Twin Cities and am familiar with local venues. My greatest
strengths are my creative abilities and enthusiasm. I think a local survey to determine what
residents would like to see may be helpful. We need community support. Perhaps the local
restaurants could come on board with a before and after “curtain call” menu or a question
and answer forum with cast members after the production may peak some interest? I have
an idea that will attract local writers and actors and put our Performing Arts Center in the
spotlight.

EDUCATION/TRAINING/CERTIFICATES
Over the span of my 42-year railroad career I studied courses on sales, marketing, customer service,
transportation, and other job-related subjects. I do not hold a college degree. Each one prepared me for the next
step of my career, which took me from my Clerk-typist/Office Manager position to Vice President, Hands-on
experience and the tenacity to learn enabled me to also take over our customer service department; event planning
(from small customer gatherings to huge resort conventions) as well as building facility management and
considerable human recourse experience.
Upon my retirement in 1995, I was hired back on a consulting basis for four years to finalize a major facility
relocation, renovation, and start-up. I was also retained as a consultant to continue the corporation’s event
planning for two huge conventions each year at national resorts; including entertainment, large banquets, formal
dinners, receptions, theme parties, golf, tennis, and all associated details.
Since retirement I have contributed hundreds of hours of volunteer work to the City of Burnsville. As a Vice
President of the Burnsville Community Foundation, over the past eleven years, I have personally raised over
$400,000 in contributions for winter lighting, park benches, pavers, and other amenities to improve our City. I also
planned and arranged all details for our 2001 Ames Sculpture dedication, parade, and pig-roast for over 2,000
people.
My negotiations with the St. Paul Farmer’s Market in 1998 convinced them to, reluctantly, to bring a Saturday
morning market in the Heart of the City on a trial basis. It is now one of their most successful markets.
I have been a supporter of the PAC since it was first sketched in as a necessary catalyst for the HOC in the early
planning process. I have continued to use my time and talents toward promoting citizen contributions and
attendance for the PAC.

STATEMENT OF INTEREST
Please attach a resume.
I have not included a resume because in my lifetime I’ve had only one job interview; and
that was 1953 - and did not require a resume. I have now been retired for fifteen years,
and feel that the other sections of this application provide sufficient information about
me.
1. Why do you want to serve on this Board?
I have a passion for the performing arts center and am willing to share my experience,
time and talent in an advisory capacity to our City Council toward the strengthening
and success of the PAC.
I am yours for the asking.
2. Tell about your experiences and how your greatest strength will contribute to this Board.
I have a proven ability to oversee all aspects of a business operation and to nurture
the good qualities of personnel and operations. At the same time I am creative in
identifying and proposing innovative solutions to strengthen weaker areas.
I have excellent problem-solving, conflict resolution and communication skills; and
would bring a well-rounded and successful career experience to the table.

STATEMENT OF INTEREST
Please attach a resume.
1. Why do you want to serve on this Board?
My family and I have lived in Burnsville for some time now and have been intrigued with the
local Performing Arts Center. I am an owner of a small business and my wife is an active artist
in the community. An article in today’s StarTribune indicates you are seeking volunteers to sit
on an advisory panel for the Center which sounds most interesting.
Years ago, we lived in Midland Michigan, a small community similar in size to Burnsville. During
these years the community promoted, designed and installed an impressive performing arts
center and I enjoyed working with various aspects of planning that facility and working with its
management. Although controversial at the time the Midland Center for the Arts has over the
years become a very successful operation with an outstanding reputation.
I may be interested in serving on this advisory panel and offering what I can to assist in the
success of this challenging new facility. Please let me know if our interest and background might
be useful to you and the City of Burnsville.

BURNSVILLE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER ADVISORY BOARD
STATEMENT OF INTEREST
Please attach a resume.
1. Why do you want to serve on this Board?
Since moving to the Twin Cities over 25 years ago, I have strived to participate in not for profit
organizations that can benefit from my expertise. I have lived in Burnsville for 5 ½ years and
would like to become active in this vibrant community. The driving factor for me is to be involved
in something that elevates not only the stature of the city but helps it grow. The Burnsville
Performing Art Center has the opportunity to be a significant economic development factor that
helps retain and recruit businesses and talent to Burnsville. It becomes another differentiator for
why a business would remain, expand, relocate or start in the City of Burnsville.
Additionally, a performing arts center becomes a place, where residents of all ages gather to
celebrate the spirit of what makes this country and our city great. From education, to providing
an outlet for local and international talent to be enjoyed, this center has a vital role in the
recovery from the recent economic downturn. I would like to assist the Burnsville Performing
Arts center in becoming successful for the long term with proper expectations being set for all
constituents.
2. Tell about your experiences and how your greatest strength will contribute to this Board.
My background has a foundation in sales, marketing and general management for large,
growing and early stage organizations. Additionally, I have served in leadership roles at the
Ordway Center for the Performing Arts as a board member, chair of the development committee
and chair of the board. I understand what it takes to properly fund, launch, sustain and grow
both for profit and not for profit organizations.
My background as CEO and President included setting strategic direction, organizational
development, and process improvement, in addition to ensuring that financial targets were
achieved. I have had direct responsibility for sales, human resources, finance, manufacturing
and marketing in past general management roles. My not for profit assignments include
fundraising and development committee, human resources committee, executive committee and
board chair.
Nothing worthwhile can be accomplished without ensuring that all constituents including
customers, governing body and funders have proper expectations as to what can be
accomplished within certain timeframes. My relationship management and communications
experience would be an asset in ensuring that these expectations are being properly set.

STATEMENT OF INTEREST
Please attach a resume.
1. Why do you want to serve on this Board?
Service and leadership are identified personal values for me and, as such, have been a consistent part of my life.
As seasons of life change, so too, have the manifestations of service and leadership for me. Early in my life (high
school and college), I was involved in Student Council, Student Activities and Scouting. All were opportunities to
both lead and serve. As a student I planned activities and events for my fellow students and served as the
Treasurer of my Senior Class. As a scout I learned to lead and serve scouts and the community and had the honor
of becoming an Eagle Scout. As an undergrad, I led and served in a number of ways. I served as a Resident
Assistant and on the Student Activities Council; planning all aspects (search, contract negotiation, facility
prep/setup, equipment rental, etc.) for the college’s annual contemporary Christian concert series.
While building a career and a family, the focus shifted. In addition to leadership and service rolls in various
professional organizations, I served in a leadership capacity with the Y-Guides program at the Burnsville YMCA
and had increasing responsibilities at my church; leading the worship program (music selection, rehearsal,
scheduling and worship leading) and as part of a core group of individuals leading all aspects of the life of the
church.
Now that children are older and off to college, it seems appropriate to shift the focus of service and leadership to an
area in which I have great interest, expertise and to which I can bring significant ‘generalist’ and life experience. I
have a history of planning quality events (professional conferences, concerts, Parent’s Weekend event, worship
services and committee and sponsorship events) for groups from 50 to 8,000. I love organizing, planning,
strategizing, and bringing into existence events and experiences that advance my profession or organization and
that give people enjoyment and pleasure, and help them experience and learn in their lives. It seems that
involvement in the PAC is a way to do all those things. I want to do everything I can to see that the significant
investment that I and my fellow citizens have made in this beautiful facility offer absolutely as many opportunities as
possible for everyone who can utilize its offerings; both now and far into the future. Hence, my desire to serve on
this Advisory Board.
2. Tell about your experiences and how your greatest strength will contribute to this Board.
I have previously mentioned several experiences which contribute to the value I would bring to the Advisory Board.
I enjoy and have the ability to work on projects and initiatives that have several “moving parts;” to keep the “big
picture” in complexity and to keep things moving forward. This is probably the greatest strength I would contribute
to this Board. I have these skills, partly because of my innate abilities and partly because of what I have learned
over a varied professional life. In my current professional role as an IT Director in a law firm I administer and
manage an annual budget of over a million dollars. I manage people and systems and serve as the liaison
between the technical staff and the non-technical executives and managers of the firm. I “speak both languages,”
which has been a consistent strength of mine, throughout both major careers tracks I have had. Communication,
management and attention to detail are strong points for me. Because of past experiences and training, I am
familiar with many aspects of the types of productions/events that the PAC might offer. I regularly negotiate
contracts and am comfortable with the language and demands of such. I’ve worked with event ticketing, equipment
rental and setup, and have some familiarity with the challenges of production timing, union worker requirements,
setup, equipment failure and a host of other related issues. Along with my professional abilities, I also have a good
sense of what people will enjoy and try to plan events that give people just a little something extra (in some circles
this is called “hospitality”). I believe this would also benefit the Board. I hope that the combination of my career
experiences, personal abilities and desire to serve our community will make me a good choice for the PAC
Advisory Board.

BURNSVILLE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER ADVISORY BOARD
STATEMENT OF INTEREST
Please attach a resume.
1.
Why do you want to serve on this Board?
I would like to serve on this board because I am a very proud 25 year resident of Burnsville and
have always been excited to see our growth and development over the years. I am also a
staunch supporter and proponent of both the Heart of the City and the Performing Art Center
and I believe that my previous professional experience in the music industry may be able to
assist the effort.
2.
Tell about your experiences and how your greatest strength will contribute to this Board.
My previous experience in the music industry includes the management and representation of
several national and international known performing artists, songwriters, and producers. The
scope of my activities included personal artist management, contract negotiations, creating
promotional materials, marketing to a variety of worldwide major recording labels, contacting
Fortune 500 clients to arrange for sponsorships. Scheduling and coordinating nationwide public
relations tours and music events. Managing 7 figure budgets and traveling extensively. I owned
and operated a full service 24 track recording studio in downtown Minneapolis for 15 years as
well.
Many of the artists that I worked with came under contract to me before, during and after
working with Prince in the hit movie “Purple Rain” and most have earned multiple RIAA certified
Gold and Platinum recording sales awards of their own as well. For one of these artists we were
fortunate enough to land an incredible 5 year exclusive contract with Michael Jackson and his
Sony / ATV Music company as a staff writer and producer. We currently have over 100 songs
that were written, produced and recorded by us that reside within the same library of music at
Sony / ATV as the Beatles, Elvis Presley, James Brown, Bob Dylan, and Michael Jackson.
During my tenure we conducted business with the likes of David Geffen (Geffen Records and
the G in DreamWorks SKG) John McClain (Executive Producer of many major projects and
current executor of Michael Jackson estate), Gary Gersh (Gersh Agency and Executive
Producer of Beatles Antholgy, etc.) Prominent worldwide entertainment attorneys John Branca,
Lee Phiillips, and George Stien, and many others.
My passion for the performing arts has never wavered and it remains the area in my life of
greatest interest. I stay in contact with most of my friends in the music business and keep a
finger on the pulse of the industry today as well. I was frequently advised that my enthusiasm for
my artists and the industry was contagious and that it was a key ingredient to our success. I
have a similar passion and enthusiasm for the Burnsville Performing Art Center and would love
to help put it on the map, much like we did in the 80’s and 90’s with the World renowned
“Minneapolis Sound” which dominated the charts for more than a decade.

BURNSVILLE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER ADVISORY BOARD
STATEMENT OF INTEREST
Please attach a resume.
1. Why do you want to serve on this Board?
I’m interested in arts & culture, I enjoy musical and theatrical performances, I believe in
citizenship and helping my community, I would like to see the Burnsville Performing Arts Center
gain stronger footing and public favor, and I expect I would enjoy the experience and opportunity
to contribute.
It is my impression that this would be a working board. I’m prepared to invest volunteer time
and energy into helping the Performing Arts Center become a sustainable asset for the
residents of Burnsville and surrounding areas. I believe the Performing Arts Center has
contributed to the quality of life in Burnsville and can do so increasingly in the future. As an 18year resident of Burnsville, I also understand some of the competing interests for city revenue.
My educational and professional background have provided me with the experience to offer
insights and perspectives into strategies and tactics on increasing revenues and realizing
efficiencies. I would like to help be a part of finding a solution to what many residents see as an
oversized public subsidy for the city’s budget.
2. Tell about your experiences and how your greatest strength will contribute to this Board.
I believe my leadership experiences in various sectors provide a “general practitioner” business
perspective that may be useful to the Advisory Board. Having served in the upper management
ranks of a large financial services corporation, higher educational institution and a large aging
services provider, I have had significant exposure to and participation in the development,
realignment and management of business and functional strategies and programs. Moreover, I
understand what it is like building a small business from the ground up and seeing matters
through a small business, entrepreneurial lens. It is likely that I have seen challenges and
opportunities similar to the Performing Arts Center in the organizations of which I have been a
part. As appropriate, I could offer perspectives on how they were dealt with in parallel
situations, as well as offer ideas and insights that have proven successful in similar settings.
Fundraising is a specific need and opportunity for the Performing Arts Center. I have broad
experience in fundraising and grantmaking, which would put me in the position to be a sounding
board, volunteer advocate, and volunteer helper in the development, implementation and
management of fundraising strategies and tasks directed at foundations, corporations, and
individuals.
Perhaps the greatest strength I have to offer is my interest in professionalism, quality, positive
results and people. If selected, I hope I could contribute good ideas and work, while being one
of a growing number of positive ambassadors for the Performing Arts Center.

STATEMENT OF INTEREST
Please attach a resume.
1. Why do you want to serve on this Board?
The city now has a significant investment in the PAC and everything that can be done must
be done for it to achieve and maintain a solid financial footing. Despite the controversy that
has always been around the PAC it is the responsibility of every citizen to do their part if they
feel they can help stabilize the PAC.
I have never hesitated to bring forward my suggestions for the PAC. I feel this is an
appropriate venue to bring those ideas out where they might do some good.
It will require a diverse group with new and creative ideas to transition the PAC into a
financially successful asset for the city.
2. Tell about your experiences and how your greatest strength will contribute to this Board.
The company I work for is a contract management company just like Venue Works. As a
contractor I can bring a perspective that can help the city better understand the relationship
between the contractor, Venue Works and the client, the city.
The years that I spent working at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres gives me a unique
understanding of the financial challenges that come with a business like the PAC.
Much of my career was spent dealing directly with special events. Special events will be a
critical component of making the PAC financially successful. It is important to have people
that have a solid understanding of how special events can impact the facility in a positive or
negative way.

STATEMENT OF INTEREST
Please attach a resume.
1. Why do you want to serve on this Board?
Having moved to Burnsville in 2008, I immediately became aware of the dedication that this community had to the
Arts and the impact it can have on our community. I have never had the privilege of living in a community where
this type of dedication was given such a priority.!
!
After recent press in the StarTribune, it became even clearer to me of this treasure that we have in our very own
community. With this great center in the Heart of the City, I have grown a great interest in participating in events
as well as ensuring that this treasure remains ours.!
2. Tell about your experiences and how your greatest strength will contribute to this Board.
I believe that I would bring many skills and unique experiences to this Board. First, as a young adult in the
community, I have a unique perspective that is absent in many governmental forums. If we are to see the
Burnsville Performing Arts Center succeed and provide years of cultural experiences, we need to find ways to bring
an interest to not only the older members of our community, but the younger members as well. !
!
My experiences at the University of Wisconsin – Superior have taught me a great deal of personal and professional
skills. Having chaired a committee that was charged with everything from brainstorming to ribbon cutting for a new
student center, I learned many things about the great responsibility that comes with public service. Throughout my
entire life, I have always strived to maintain professionalism, keeping an honorable reputation and maintaining a
responsible level of civic engagement and responsibility. !

I think it would be an awesome opportunity to be able to assist in the success of a viable
community theatre that is in its infancy stage.
2. Tell about your experiences and how your greatest strength will contribute to this Board.
I have an extraverted personality and believe in promotion and networking. With no personal
gain, I brought in a couple people to tour the PAC as they are interested in booking a fall event,
which could get national attention. Even if this event isn’t booked, at least this particular
audience knows of it’s existence.
I think my greatest strength, would be my ability to promote the venue within the community,
bring creative partners to the table and my willingness to devote time and energy to the success
of the arts in the Heart of the City.

STATEMENT OF INTEREST
Please attach a resume.
1. Why do you want to serve on this Board?
I have a great deal of interest and experience in the Arts community. I was a strong supporter of
the Performing Arts Center, but I don’t feel it is being used to its potential. I would like the
opportunity to be part of the solution in making the PAC a more community-oriented as well as
profitable facility. I believe I can contribute to the Board in a variety of ways through my
volunteer and professional experience, as well as my skills in communications and public
relations.
2. Tell about your experiences and how your greatest strength will contribute to this Board.
I have volunteered in the Arts community for many years. I have been involved with Applause
Community Theatre, the Prior Lake Players and the Eden Prairie Players, as well as the
Calhoun-Isles Community Band. I also have a great deal of professional and volunteer
experience in public relations, communications and event planning. My greatest strength is my
dedication to the arts as a community service, along with my organizational and
communications skills.

Name Kathy Cleveland
BURNSVILLE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER ADVISORY BOARD
STATEMENT OF INTEREST
Please attach a resume.
1. Why do you want to serve on this Board?
As a long term residence of Burnsville, having grown up here, gone off to college and returned
to Burnsville to raise my family, I have a growing commitment to assure the vitality of this fine
city for my children and hopefully someday grand children. This is an opportunity to represent
the voice of the silent majority that value the high quality of life that is enhanced by the arts and
culture of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center.
2. Tell about your experiences and how your greatest strength will contribute to this
Board.
As a Director for the world’s largest photographic company, there are many networking
connections and resources available to me that may benefit the PAC and help grow business.
For example, the team in our Media Creations department did a segment on the BPAC,
including interviews from the well known Mike Max (sports and news, Channel 4) and was
showcased on the Life to the Max series that aired in January.
As a supporter of the PAC I have attended many performances from the Innagural Gala with
Melissa Manchester to Junior Clause and several Chameleon productions as well. Each time I
enter the building I still marvel at the beauty and craftsmanship and find that I am so proud to be
a part of this great town and the legacy that the PAC is carving out in the industry. As an
educator for my company I spend a great deal of time training and opening studios in new
markets across the US. As a result, I am very familiar with reading and understanding market
research and looking at competitive landscaping that may influence the ability to drawn from
many different areas. Finally, it would be an honor and a priviledge to serve the community and
gain knowledge and insight into the world of the arts, that will become a major draw for music,
art and performance lovers all over the twin cities.
Thank you,
Kathy Cleveland
