Board and Governance

Directed by 15 commissioners appointed by the chief executives of the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County, the current RAC board represents the diversity of business leadership and arts advocacy in St. Louis. With professional experience in finance, law, marketing, healthcare, non-profit management, education, human resources, and artistic practice and arts management, Commissioners meet monthly with the full staff and more frequently for committee meetings.
