  • high level business acumen and integration with the business communities of both the city and its environs
  • wide experience in development and fundraising.

A commitment of approximately 10-15 days per year is required for Board and Committee meetings and other events, performances, and hosting.  Although membership of the Board is unremunerated, reasonable out of pocket expenses arising from the role are reimbursed.
