Interested in becoming a member of our Board of Directors?

 Serving on a community non-profit board can be very rewarding.  The St. Charles County Arts Council Board of Directors directs the resources of the council, oversees the activities of the staff and facilities, assists in fundraising, lends sponsorship to arts events in the county and brings their own expertise to the table.

We are always looking for individuals from diverse backgrounds to serve on our board. We are open to individuals with:

  • wisdom about the arts
  • funding and advocating for the arts
  • willingness to lend a hand, lend time, and lend ideas
  • connections in the community
  • talent to share

 It is not important that each board member have all of these traits.  Rather, we seek individuals who, with their own strengths, will help balance the board giving the council multiple strengths.

General meetings are open to the public and held the first Tuesday (Jan, Mar, May, July, Sep. Nov.). Committees meet as needed by the task they are charged with.
