Boards and Committees
As a nonprofit organization, ArtsQuest is led by volunteers who serve in a variety of capacities on the Boards and Committees that support the organization’s mission. The traditional definition of a leadership volunteer is someone who offers “time, talent and treasure”, based upon his/her/their abilities.
ArtsQuest is an inclusive environment welcoming diverse and creatively talented civic leaders whose skills and engagement will enhance the community ArtsQuest serves. The board has been established to provide guidance and oversight, holding ArtsQuest accountable to achieve its goals, to operate in accordance with the local, state and federal legislations for nonprofit organizations, to improve internal and external operations and to ensure adequate financial resources. The operational responsibilities and duties related to the implementation is incumbent on the staff. The variety of board member responsibilities requires a well-established and advised board with diverse backgrounds, skills and suitable expertise.
