Membership has steadily grown since our Chapter's inception and currently stands at approximately 140 members. For more information, contact Garrett Hondronastas at 528-3663.

Aug 8 - Executive Director
The Executive Director is responsible for the overall leadership and management of the organization according to its mission and strategic vision as set by the Board of Directors. Leading a staff of 15 full time, part-time and contract employees, the Executive Director must be an entrepreneurial individual who will be responsible for ensuring sustainability and organizational growth through fundraising; spearheading organizational strategy; providing oversight of artistic programs; increasing strong partnerships in the community; and being the overall “face” of the organization to both the general public and the orchestras’ families, with respect to fundraising and matters not involving our artistic programs. We are seeking an individual with a minimum of 5 or more years of progressive management experience in the non-profit sector with a proven track record of successful fundraising in the areas of grant writing, individual donor development and corporate sponsorships.
