Following its Annual conference last fall, New York Multi-Arts Center Consortium's (NYMACC) board sent out a request for proposals to have a part time employee at a member organization become NYMACC's Service Coordinator. We sent the RFP on Dec 20th and received only two proposals by the original deadline of Jan 31. 

The NYMACC board, in hope that by extending the deadline we can get a wider representation of our field, decided to set March 28 as the new deadline.
