Across the Board

The articles featured here appear in the Spring/Summer 2018 issue of Across the Board, a publication of OPERA America for opera company trustees.

From OPERA America's President and CEO:

This inaugural issue of Across the Board comes on the heels of OPERA America’s best-attended National Trustee Forum. From February 21–23, 2018, a record number of 52 trustees representing 33 Professional Company Members convened at OPERA America’s National Opera Center in New York City to discuss a broad array of governance topics, including board member recruitment, committee structure and succession planning, as well as other significant issues shaping the industry today.

The Trustee Forum was established in 2005 with the core belief that the strength of an opera company is directly linked to the quality of governance demonstrated by its board members. This new, semiannual newsletter is dedicated to providing you with insights into the successful leadership practices and strategies of opera company boards throughout the sector.

I hope you will benefit from the collective knowledge of the field and will draw on OPERA America’s resources in leading and supporting your company to success.
