|Committed to building better communities by providing services and programs in music career development, non-profit technical assistance, and community health and wellness to individuals and families in need.
|We are volunteer-driven organization. As volunteers, the board governs the organization and has specific fiduciary responsibilities for which it must be accountable. Additional responsibilities generally include oversight of policy, budgeting, planning, fundraising, human resources, program evaluation and board development.The board of directors of B & A Entertainment Services is legally and financially responsible for the conduct of the organization. It is not a passive role but rather one that must be active for the good of the organization and for reducing liability of the individual directors. It is not just for-profit corporations that are under ever increasing scrutiny for ethical operations.An effective board member is one that brings unique ability and perspective to a board and takes an active interest in the organization. Having a "well known" board member for the sake of their name can be more damaging than beneficial. Having board members who are connected in the community, are representative of our constituency and truly want to help the organization succeed are a better fit.
