The NEC Board of Visitors is a group of business and community leaders, friends, parents, alumni, artists, former board members, and educators who recognize the value of the NEC experience and who support the Conservatory’s mission and students in a variety of individualized ways. Visitors provide an invaluable leadership link between their local, national, and international communities and the programs and activities of New England Conservatory.
