ING 80 YEAR T A R B E S CEL OF

CCAE

In Fall 1938, what was previously known as the Cambridge Social Union officially became Cambridge Center for Adult Education. This year, we're celebrating 80 years of creating, exploring, and growing!


CCAE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

From the Executive Director

Christian Nolen, Chair

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Richard Beaty, Vice-Chair Lidija Polutnik, Treasurer Melissa Smith, Secretary

It is satisfying to look back on my second year as Executive Director and see that, together, we have accomplished a great deal!

Kris Butler Brian Carey

To start the fiscal year, the Board of Directors approved a

Philip Crutchfield

three-year growth plan designed to keep Cambridge Center

for Adult Education sustainable, robust and relevant as a community leader and cultural institution, and to ground CCAE financially and operationally. With the adoption of the growth plan was also the

investment in our future growth and fund the plan’s key initiatives.

Now completing its first year, we are beginning to see the rewards. We have

updated website and refreshed logo early next year—with a bright new look and an improved user experience. We have made a concerted effort to give back to the community, forming partnerships with fellow nonprofits. We have welcomed a number of new individual donors and additional corporate sponsors into our fold, while rewarding our generous and committed supporters with the benefits of our new donor circle—The Spreading Chestnut Tree Society. Finally, with a welcome overall increase in enrollment and tuition revenue this year, we have seen the fruits of a

dynamic and committed staff and faculty at work. This coming year promises to show the same kind of positive change, but we cannot continue to grow without the support and commitment of our donors, our Board of Directors and Board of Visitors, our staff, our faculty and, of course, our ever-widening number of engaged students. Together, we can continue the CCAE mission—to explore, to create, to grow.

From the Chairman of the Board Dear Friends of CCAE,

CCAE STAFF Linda Burton, Executive Director

It was with great pleasure, and no small amount of

trepidation, that I stepped into the role of chairman of

Programs

CCAE’s Board of Directors at the beginning of this year. Many have preceded me over the 80 years since we became Cambridge Center for Adult Education, and all of them had one thing in common—they have faced and overcome many challenges as they stewarded our beloved

and historic institution into this century.

Francesca Ferraris, Program Manager

The challenges, alas, will always remain, but we are increasingly optimistic

that CCAE will grow and thrive into this century as it did in the last.

The Building and Grounds Committee oversaw the installation of a much-needed new heating system for the William Brattle House before winter assaults us. The Governance Committee did an exemplary job of recruiting new board members, with eight worthy candidates rejuvenating and enriching our already energetic Board of Directors, and increasing the likelihood of even more good work

I applaud the staff for the hard work they have done this year to increase

enrollment, to find ways to engage in meaningful partnerships, to give back to our community and neighborhood, and to publicize our mission. With their help, and that of our talented faculty and with an increasing body of interested students, we will continue to write a success story into this new year.

Keeping CCAE Vibrant NEW CLASSES AND E XCEPTIONAL EVENTS

Our creative and talented program team made great strides this year in introducing many new and innovative classes to the CCAE roster. \\ Tim McCool’s Abstract Art: Contemporary Approaches began last fall, and currently has an enthusiastic and loyal following of talented student abstracters, many of whom will be part of a student-curated art show at CCAE in winter 2019. \\ Since summer of 2017, Bryan Ramey and his students spend Wednesday evenings visiting local watering holes for his class Drawing in Bars. His students find that their surroundings offer them a fluidity of technique and liquidity of inspiration, especially as the evening progresses. \\ Is it on your bucket list to tell stories on The Moth Radio Hour? Students have been workshopping their own Moth-style performances with Storytelling as Performance Art with Dewayne Nelson as of last fall.

\\ Date Night Cooking Classes began in winter 2018 and consistently sell out. Couples get practical, hands-on experience while enjoying romantic dishes and flavors. \\ Conversaciones a travès de Cortometrajes Hispanos: Spanish Conversation & Short Films is a new Friday night Spanish film class and one of our first Friday evening language classes. It was so popular that we’ll be bringing it back this winter. \\ A Focus on World Languages. Francesca Ferraris, who taught German at CCAE for the last eight years, took over the World Languages and English as a Second Language programs last fall. Her new free language assessments provide assistance to students unsure about their language levels. ESL students in intensive summer classes were treated to a Boston Signature Dishes class with culinary program manager Ploy Khunisorn, where they created and ate a typical New England meal. \\ CCAE hosted four student and faculty art shows, including the 3rd Annual Berta Golahny Awards where we awarded two instructors and three students for their artistic excellence. The summer show, Nature: Inside/Out, was the first of a new small group show program where students propose and curate their own exhibition at CCAE. To celebrate, CCAE hosted a closing reception with a free printmaking demonstration led by the artists. \\ In a new summer event, CCAE Summer Sampler, interested neighbors and friends came to CCAE on a Friday night in July to informally sample watercoloring, salsa dancing, beer tasting, and Spanish short films as they noshed on seasonal treats.

Brett Gamache and his students in the popular Objects & Space: Still Life & Landscape Painting class on Wednesday afternoons.

Our Outstanding Educators Painting instructor Brett Gamache leads CCAE’s Studio School, established in 1994. Gamache states, “Our program offers students a wide variety of art classes focusing on observational painting and drawing. It provides students a rare opportunity to experience 3 to 4 hour studio classes in a supportive, focused setting with constructive feedback from a working artist.” While Gamache’s classes provide experienced students with a deep dive into the topics, he also states, “I try and provide my students with a fun, supportive environment... We focus on how to see the subject in terms of line, shape, form, color, and composition. I often tell my students, ‘all art is abstract’ when broken down into shapes and color relationships.” In his own oil paintings, Gamache works from direct observation, capturing live surfers on Gloucester’s Good Harbor Beach, or more recently, working from ceramic pots he brought home from a trip to Morocco last winter. Gamache holds an MFA in Painting and in 2007 received a Fulbright Scholarship to paint in Italy, where he has traveled extensively.

CCAE in the World As part of the three-year growth strategy, a new marketing plan was put in place. The humor and attentiveness of the new marketing staff was everywhere evident, as they created new collateral for CCAE and put out one memorable tweet and post after another.

With new attention on marketing, we continue to see these immediate payoffs: \\ Our number of followers increased dramatically and our enrollment is up for the last four consecutive terms. \\ The marketing team is now leading the effort to create a new, mobilefriendly CCAE website and refreshed logo, to be launched early next year. \\ With the benefit of a short-term contract with a publicist, we have seen CCAE featured in the press in Cambridge Chronicle, The Food Lens, Improper Bostonian, The Boston Globe, and more. For the third consecutive year, CCAE was voted Scout Cambridge’s Best Community Classes.

CCAE’s Series

THE OLD AND THE NEW

An important way for CCAE to engage the community in and beyond the world of its classes and students is through its discussion, lecture, and reading series. Conversations on the Edge, a cutting-edge series launched by a committee of board members, staff, and community activists, had a positive inaugural season, with sold-out crowds and robust discussions around pressing topics including immigration, voting rights, income inequality, and resistance. This year’s series began with an important and timely topic, Social Media and Democracy, held at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. The Gonson Lecture Series is an engaging group of lectures every fall and spring that offers anyone in the community with a compelling message a platform to discuss it with an interested group of daytime listeners. This past year offered a talk on art and his career by Antiques Roadshow alum Dan Elias and a survey of the Boston dining scene over the last 40 years. This year’s series will feature a lecture on the joys of beekeeping, the intrigues of Garibaldi, and the eco-conscious pleasures of tiny-housing, among other topics. This year marks the 45th birthday for the acclaimed Blacksmith House Poetry Series, founded in 1973 by Gail Mazur at CCAE. Over the years, the poetry series has welcomed Nobel Prize winners and poets laureate as well as a many new and emerging writers.

The Financial Picture = Growth CCAE saw a second year of strong operating performance. Propelled by the Innovation Fund-enabled investments in people and the classroom experience, development revenue was up nearly $120,000 and tuition revenue benefited from three consecutive terms of year-over-year growth, something we had not seen in several years. Our Fall 2018 term is off to a strong start and we expect our current trends to continue. Operating Income and Expenses FY18*

CCAE’s culinary program manager and instructor, Ploy Khunisorn, teaches the secrets of vegetarian Thai food with the Community Servings Teaching Kitchen.

CCAE in the Community This past year, CCAE partnered with several local nonprofit organizations to offer classes free-of-charge to their constituents. \\ Community Servings’ Teaching Kitchen is a job-training program for people interested in food service careers who face barriers to full-time employment. These students ventured from their teaching kitchen in Jamaica Plain to ours and made delicious dishes including paella, flan, and Indian dosa. This fall, students discovered the world of Thai food with culinary program manager, Ploy Khunisorn, some of them tasting Thai food for the first time. \\ Women combating homelessness and other challenges with the help of Cambridge’s On the Rise recently joined CCAE for a class on creating an online business with Etsy, and will return to learn how to start a housecleaning business and to take finance classes. \\ This coming year, Perkins School for the Blind students will come to CCAE to take a class on iPhone Photography. \\ Every year, CCAE gives out over $20,000 in a scholarship program for students with financial need, thanks to the generosity of our corporate and foundation support, and the generosity of CCAE Annual Fund donors.

Innovation Fund In 2017, CCAE’s Board of Directors tasked Executive Director Linda Burton with devising a three-year plan to make CCAE financially stable in these challenging times in the world of adult education. The plan was to keep CCAE sustainable, robust and relevant as a community leader and cultural institution. This plan included creating new marketing and development teams, developing a new, mobile-friendly website, and increasing enrollment.

FY 2018 INNOVATION FUND DONORS Mary Coolidge Elizabeth D. Coxe John Herron, Jr. and Julia L. Moore Christian Nolen and Susan Denny Wilson and Eliot C. Nolen Amy and Jonathan H. Poorvu

Realizing that a substantial financial investment would need to be made to fund these changes and increase sustainability, the board established an Innovation Fund with the goal of raising $475,000 over three years. We have met all of the goalposts for our first year, including many of the things reported here. Just under half of the $475,000 Innovation Fund was raised in Fiscal Year 2018, keeping our growth plan on course. But we will need to add to that Fund significantly this year in order to keep on track.

CCAE’s Fundraising Parties We love our fundraising events at CCAE, and we always seem to name them Of Course! Oysters, Of Course! provided a ideal start to our summer, with an abridged version of our famous biennial fundraising party, Of Course! On a warm, beautiful May evening in the courtyard of The Blacksmith House, local restaurants and businesses generously provided tables full of oysters, ice cream, refreshments, and more for over 200 enthusiastic guests to enjoy. Please visit and show your gratitude to the restaurants and businesses that supported our fundraiser and mention CCAE! We are planning for Of Course! 2019. Save the date for Sunday, April 28, 2019 for learning, feasting and fun. Of Course! will start in CCAE’s classrooms and kitchen by offering each guest two classes from a roster of irresistible choices, and then we’ll all parade behind a brass band to The Charles Hotel, where the best restaurants, vintners, and beer-makers in Cambridge and beyond provide us with intoxicating small bites and delicious adult beverages.

CCAE’s Two Boards INVALUABLE RESOURCES

CCAE’s Board of Directors had a busy and constructive year under the committed leadership of board chair Christian Nolen. Newly-energized committees produced significant results, including: \\ An ad hoc Bylaw Committee worked to replace the outdated bylaws. \\ The Development Committee and event subcommittee planned a successful Oysters, Of Course! fundraiser. \\ The Governance Committee did a yeoman’s job of engaging new board members, resulting in eight dynamic new recruits seated this fall. \\ The Finance Committee kept us on an even keel amid rising enrollment and revenue numbers overall. \\ The Building and Grounds Committee helped to replace our heating system at 42 Brattle Street.

The Board of Visitors (BoV) met last fall for an afternoon tea where Executive Director Linda Burton presented the three-year plan of action. At a spring gathering over lunch, the BoV discussed the new Conversations on the Edge series and contributed ideas on future topics and venues for this important and popular program.

Vision for 2019 and Beyond To continue our mission—to explore, create, and grow— we are prepared for a year of rising and realized expectations as we implement the second year of our strategic plan toward growth and financial well-being at Cambridge Center for Adult Education. We look forward to filling our classrooms with eager students, empowered to explore their most wide-ranging interests and deepest passions. We will continue to invest our time and energy into developing new and innovative class topics each year. With the web design team, CCAE will have in place a new website that is clearer, more visually enticing, and mobile-friendly. We expect to launch the new site this winter, along with an updated and refreshed logo, and anticipate that the new look and updated site will extend our reach and accessibility. We plan to keep growing the CCAE Annual Fund into a robust reservoir adequate to our needs, welcoming new individual contributors. The circle of donors we created in 2018, the Spreading Chestnut Tree Society, will continue to flower as its members become more involved in the classes and events at CCAE. We will keep up our efforts to reach into the neighborhood and beyond with corporate and community partners. And, of course, we plan to welcome many more supporters to our biennial fundraiser party, Of Course! on April 28, 2019. Finally, during this 80th anniversary year, we will celebrate that Cambridge Center for Adult Education continues to be a warm and welcoming place where people thirsty for knowledge come to engage in civil discourse on the events of the day, to learn, to celebrate, to create art, to read poetry, to gather together to nurture talent and pursue personal growth. CCAE’s brand of community learning must— and will—continue!
