We need to be able to hold meetings in my office and not be embarrassed by the holes in the carpet. We need to have a dedicated work space for our volunteers and much more storage so we don't have to keep supplies on the floor. I would love to be proud of my office and show it off to musicians, ticket buyers, funders and community leaders. I am happy to go to work every day but I would like to be excited about working in a colorful, happy office space that matches the energy and professionalism of our Symphony.
With a $1000 Ikea gift card I would invest in a new desk and chair for myself, chairs and a table for committee meetings, a big colorful rug, lots of storage, lamps and colorful accessories.
