Board and committees

The Conseil des arts consists of 21 members, most of whom are from the arts milieu, but also from the academic, business and municipal communities. All are volunteers and live on the Island of Montréal.

Members are appointed for a three-year term, once renewable, by the Agglomeration Council of Montréal, which names from among those members a chairperson and two vice-chairs. The treasurer of the City of Montréal is ex-officio Treasurer of the Conseil des arts.
