The core responsibility of the Springfield Ballet Company Board of Directors is to adhere in every way to the Company mission: "The Springfield Ballet Company provides dance education and performances to enrich our community through the beauty, energy, and diversity of dance."
The Board's greatest asset is the SBC staff. Our employees, who educate and inspire Company dancers and Trainees, plan and conduct performances of the highest professional quality and reach out to community constituencies such as school children and senior citizens and enrich their lives. Staff members also keep the business side of our organization functioning smoothly on a day-to-day basis.
As Board members, our role has been to assemble the staff, instill it with a spirit of teamwork, and encourage the creation of mission-oriented programs. More directly, the Board is responsible for developing resources to support Company activities and for meeting our fiduciary obligations to the community to expend and fully account for Company resources wisely. In these and other ways, the Board ensures the current and future viability of our treasured community asset.
