Board of Directors
The Board of Directors assumes legal and philosophical responsibility for the Yeiser Art Center and its activities. The Board of Directors is solely responsible for establishing policy, approving the annual program budget and determining the goals and direction of the Center. The Yeiser Board of Directors is both a policy-making board and an administrative board. The Board’s role includes: advancing the mission of the art center, planning for its future, managing, developing and allocating resources to sustain the Yeiser’s financial viability and making sure that all staff and volunteers understand their roles and responsibilities. The Board also makes sure that the collection is effectively managed and conserved and sees that the Center’s public programs effectively use ideas, concepts and objects to provide opportunities for learning and enjoyment. The Board has ultimate responsibility and accountability for the Yeiser Art Center. Although it may delegate daily management, even long-range planning, to the Executive Director, other staff members and Committees, it must be involved in the development and review of program plans, budgeting, the evaluation of personnel and the monitoring of its programs.
