The Board of Directors  is the governing body of The Women's Chorus of Dallas. The Board meets every month, with committees meeting in alternate months. Board members are asked to serve on at least one committee.  Each member is expected to contribute or acquire monetary donations for the organization annually.  


As set forth in the chorus bylaws, the Board sets long-range, strategic plans; assists the chorus at concerts; recruits new Board Members; hires and supervises staff; sets the annual budget; seeks and applies for grant funding; and plans and implements fundraising efforts.
