The Arts Council of Princeton is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. In addition to serving as a legal entity, the Board of Trustees brings community representation to the organization. Board members represent diverse segments of the community through their occupations, geographic locations, experience and backgrounds. In turn, our board members represent the ACP within the community and are stewards of the organization’s mission, goals, policies and finances.

Advisory Board members are leaders in the community, providing feedback on how we are doing and how we can continue to serve the community. Advisory Board members also serve as ambassadors from the Arts Council into the community, helping to communicate news of exciting programming and events.
