Governance: The Board of Trustees

The Providence Singers Inc. is governed by a Board of Trustees of up to 18 voting members. The Board has direct oversight of the Executive Director and the Artistic Director, both of whom serve as non-voting ex officio members of the Board.

The Board carries out its responsibilities through six permanent committees and other committees it may create as necessary. Each is chaired by a Board member. With the exception of the Executive Committee, all committees include both Board members and non-members. (The Executive Committee, empowered to take certain actions on behalf of the full Board, includes only officers of the Board and chairs of committees. The Board Chair leads the Executive Committee.)

As ex officio members, the Executive Director and Artistic Director report regularly to the Board on operational and artistic matters and work together to develop the business plan and musical content for future seasons.
