Board of Governors

Here at the South Orange Performing Arts Center, one of our greatest assets is our Board of Governors who serve as ambassadors for SOPAC in the community. These volunteers donate their time and talents guiding and leading SOPAC. Their attitude of serving both SOPAC’s patrons and our collective community with the highest level of respect, providing excellent customer service, fantastic experiences, and staying on mission.

We gratefully acknowledge the dedication and outstanding service to all our Board of Governors, past and present whose governance has made the South Orange Performing Arts Center what it is today.
