Board of Directors

The Victoria Symphony is supported by a Board of Directors that is both a governance and a fundraising body. The Board meets between 8-10 times annually and approves and monitors the annual budget and financial reports, and advises and is advised by the CEO and senior staff. Currently there are 10 elected members plus two orchestra representatives on the Board.  Board members serve a three-year term and bring diverse experience and expertise to the organization including financial, legal, business, governance and human resources.
