Elect Your Affiliate Representative

Ballots due Friday, September 11, 2015

One of the benefits affiliates enjoy is the opportunity to be represented on the ArtsWestchester Board of Trustees. Four seats are designated for ArtsWestchester affiliates.

You are eligible to vote if your organization’s affiliate membership is current. Please note only the Executive Director or Board President is eligible to vote.

Roles and Responsibilities

Affiliates play an important role, bringing to the table their knowledge and understanding of Westchester’s cultural organizations. Once elected, they are full members of the board, participating in deliberations, serving on committees and voting on policy issues. Affiliates have the same role and responsibilities shared by all members of ArtsWestchester’s board; that is to guide ArtsWestchester in its efforts to implement its mission: “To provide leadership, vision and support to ensure the availability, accessibility and diversity of the arts in Westchester.”

Specific responsibilities include:

  • Participating in board meetings. The board meets four times a year.
  • Serving on the Affiliate Committee and at least one other committee of the ArtsWestchester’s board.
