The League of American Orchestras' Noteboom Governance Center offers a comprehensive range of support, strategies, and programs designed to strengthen governance practice in orchestras, including regional seminars for board members and CEOs, board chair peer groups focusing on top-level governance and strategic challenges, peer exchange and learning sessions at the League’s National Conference, and online discussions and resources at League360 board member communities.
