Detailed Information
The board supports the work of Atlantic Symphony Orchestra and provides mission-based leadership, strategic governance, and strategic planning and any needed follow through. While day-to-day operations are led by ASOÕs chief executive officer (CEO), the board-CEO relationship is a partnership, and the appropriate involvement of the board is both critical and expected. We are a working board. Specific board member responsibilities include:
    • Leadership, governance, oversight, strategic partnership, and strategy implementation when needed
    • Serving as a trusted advisor to the CEO as they develop and implement ASOÕs strategic plan
    • Reviewing outcomes and metrics created by ASO for evaluating ASOÕs impact, and regularly measuring its performance and effectiveness using those metrics; reviewing agenda and supporting materials prior to board and committee meetings
    • Approving ASOÕs annual budget, audit reports, and material business decisions; being informed of, and meeting all, legal and fiduciary responsibilities
    • Contributing to an annual performance evaluation of the CEO
    • Assisting the CEO and board chair in identifying and recruiting other board members
    • Partnering with the CEO and other board members to ensure that board resolutions are carried out
    • Serving on committees or task forces and/or taking on special assignments
