Board of Directors

The Cabarrus Arts Council serves the entire county and carefully selects its board members to provide community-wide representation. Directors are nominated by a committee that includes board and non-board members who consider a matrix of priorities including municipalities, race, gender, arts expertise, professional expertise and many other factors. Every director fills a specific need on the board in order to build an effective team.

The arts council board is a working board. Every director attends monthly board meetings and is active on at least one committee. 100% of board members donate to the council and raise funds for it. The arts council board of directors works closely with the President and CEO and actively promotes the arts throughout Cabarrus County.
