Board of Overseers

NEC’s Board of Overseers includes musical, educational, financial and community leaders from inside and outside New England. Overseers are asked to inform themselves about the Conservatory and to bring to it their perceptions, experience, advice and assistance. Trustees and Overseers serve jointly on standing and advisory committees devoted to broad areas of institutional support as well as to specific projects.
