Board Of Trustees
The Greater Columbus Arts Council is governed by a board of up to 30 trustees. In the past 48 years, more than 200 community members have served in this capacity. All were chosen for their visibility in the community, their experience with cultural and civic organizations and their representation of the diversity of our community. The board’s eight standing committees directly involve our trustees in all of the Arts Council’s programs. By following an aggressive system of rotation, the Arts Council encourages new trustees to lend their experience to as many areas as possible. Trustees are challenged to mentor a board that will embrace new input while maintaining a consistent and focused vision. The sustained dedication of our trustees encourages staff, volunteers and constituent organizations to strive for excellence and to give every person in the community a chance to experience and appreciate the arts.
