Staff and Board

The Board of Directors of the Haywood County Arts Council is made up of a group of passionate volunteers, dedicated to serving the art and artists in our community. Board members are elected to three-year terms, and cannot serve more than three consecutive terms during their tenure. Nominations for new members takes place once at year, and those approved are voted into their positions during the Haywood County Arts Council’s annual meeting in January. Board meetings take place on the third Thursday of each month. If you are interested in serving as a member of the HCAC Board of Directors, please email
