One of the greatest assets at the South Orange Performing Arts Center is the Board of Governors who serve as ambassadors for SOPAC in the community, and lend their expertise and guidance to many aspects of the organization. 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.
