Board of Governors

Here at the South Orange Performing Arts Center, one of our greatest assets is the Board of Governors who serve as ambassadors for SOPAC in the community, and lend their expertise and guidance to many aspects of administration and operations. These dedicated volunteers donate their time and talents to guiding and leading SOPAC. They foster a culture of serving SOPAC’s patrons and the community with arts experiences of the highest quality while adhering to SOPAC’s mission. 

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