Working board? Fundraising board? Governing board? A healthy opera company relies on its trustees to be all three. But board members, company leaders and fundraising staff must unite in taking a strategic approach to recruit and engage effective trustees. OPERA America President/CEO Marc A. Scorca will lead this participatory session to discuss how to establish and maintain a healthy balance between passionate opera devotees and business leaders; between community spokesmen and philanthropic angels; and among other dimensions of economic, geographic and demographic diversity — all as part of a unified approach to strengthening companies.
