Image for Four New Trustees Elected to National Guild Board

Nov 25, 2015

The National Guild is pleased to announce the election of four new members to our Board of Trustees. Trustees serve an integral role in shaping Guild policy and are key influencers in the world of arts education. The new Trustees are:
·         Sandra Jackson-Dumont, Chairman of Education, Metropolitan Museum of Art
·         Jim Kearns, President, iCAN, the Incredible Children's Art Network
·         Jeff Melanson, CEO, Toronto Symphony Orchestra
·         Barrie Trimingham, Chair, Settlement Music School’s Central Board of Trustees

“We’re all extremely fortunate to add Sandra, Barrie, Jeff, and Jim to our board,” said Jonathan Herman, executive director of the National Guild. “They bring critical insight and experience to us in this period of growth at the Guild. Terry Hueneke and the rest of the Trustees have been central to the strategic planning that has helped expand membership, programming, and the size of our staff over the past year. Our new Trustees are going to fit right in on what is already a hard-working and highly dedicated Board.”

Trustees are nominated by the National Guild's Governance Committee, which endeavors to assemble a Board that reflects the diversity and scope of the community arts education field. Consideration is given to artistic discipline, organizational size, program types, geography, gender, and ethnicity, among other criteria. Board elections were held during the Guild's annual meeting at the Conference for Community Arts Education in Philadelphia.
