Board of Directors

To guide its actions, the Conseil des arts de Montréal can count on the sound advice of the members of its Board of Directors, who come mainly from the arts community, but also from the education, business and municipal sectors.


The Board of Directors is made up of 21 members, all of whom reside on the island of Montreal and work as volunteers for the Conseil. Each person is appointed for a three-year term, renewable once, by the Agglomeration Council of Montreal, which also appoints one person as President and two as Vice-Presidents. The Treasurer is automatically the Treasurer of the City of Montreal.
