Advisory Councils

We strive to create a more vibrant cultural life for our entire community. To accomplish this goal, ASC’s Board of Directors has established Advisory Councils to ensure that ASC is actively engaged in assessing community and resident needs.

The Advisory Councils are chaired by ASC Board members and are responsible and accountable for input, feedback and recommendations to the ASC Board so the cultural community is aligned with the needs of local communities. The Advisory Councils include: North/West, Central, South/East, Private Sector, Cultural Sector: Organizations and Cultural Sector: Individuals.
