Arts Schools Network


The ASN Board of Directors furthers the Arts Schools Network mission of providing leaders of inspiring emerging and seasoned leaders in K-16 arts schools by providing quality resources, support, and networking opportunities to elevate their institutions.

The Arts Schools Network Board of Directors governs the overall execution of the organization’s mission. Principally, the Board manages organizational finances and sets long term priorities for the overall success and growth of the organization. Additionally, the Board oversees the Managing Director who is responsible for day-to-day management of the organization.  Overall, the members of the Board contribute the educational, management, legal, and financial skills needed to ensure long term organizational stability and ensure year-to-year excellence for the Arts Schools Network mission. Board positions require time and energy; a commitment that should not be underestimated.

Board members are expected to attend two in-person meetings per year (one at annual conference) and one virtual meeting, at their own expense, and make a financial contribution to the organization each year. Candidates are urged to consider personal priorities for the next three years as well as ways to contribute to the development of the organization.

The ASN Board is actively seeking board members who will aid us in our goal of representing the diversity of our constituency across a wide spectrum of identities and experiences, including (but not limited to): race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, national origin, immigration status, age, locale, class, employment status, interests, and personal experiences and history.
