Board of Directors


The Gualala Arts’ Board of Directors meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month.

They establish policy and budget, approve major expenditures and committee appointments, review financials, committee reports, and arts center activities, plan fund-raisers and develop long-range plans.

They oversee the well-being of the organization, serve on many of the arts center’s committees and activity groups and give direction to the organization’s staff.

Board terms are three years with a possible renewal. Board members are nominated by a nominating committee, can be nominated from the floor at the annual meeting, or may personally request their name be placed on the ballot.
