FAST members are persons or entities who care deeply about Morgan County and the role of arts, sciences, technologies and social studies in the lives of County residents. With $5/household annual dues, FAST members help generate funds for important projects throughout the County. Members receive periodic newsletters and other educational materials as set by the Board of Directors, and they elect Directors at the annual meeting of the Corporation in June.
Many FAST projects involve mixtures of arts, sciences, technologies and social studies that interact to give a richer experience and understanding of events in our daily lives. We can consider computer technology in making music, art and photography or the math and physics of acoustics, resonance or dance. Each personís curiosity can enjoy seeing how systematic measures of basic science can give better understanding of the processes in our daily technology of water and food supply and in communication. The community becomes richer as individuals share their ideas and insights.
Overall, FAST supports the goal of Benjamin Franklin who started in 1743 the country's first forum where people could communicate their records and interpretations of "all philosophical Experiments that let Light into the Nature of Things, tend to increase the Power of Man over Matter, and multiply the Conveniences or Pleasures of Life."
