Many of you may wonder about the function of the Board of Directors, so I'd like to tell you about what we do. The Board is a group of friendly, collegial people who all love music in general, and BONJ in particular. All of us serve as volunteers. The Board is the governing body of BONJ. We oversee financial management, budgets, publicity, marketing, audience development and fundraising, just to name a few. We all attend monthly Board meetings at the Morris County library. We all serve on various committees and assist our artistic director, Dr. Robert Butts in planning each season. In addition we are the public face of BONJ representing the Orchestra at various community events. Each of us supports BONJ by a monetary donation commensurate with our financial abilities. No minimum donation is required. Each particular Board member brings his or her unique talents, outlook and interests to the Board. Many of us were longtime audience members, or students of Bob before we joined the Board. We come from diverse backgrounds. We are a welcoming, fun-loving group who all work in harmony to further the mission of BONJ.
Right now BONJ is looking to expand our Board. If you love the Orchestra and want to help continue to energize our organization and bring your special talents to the table, please contact me at 973-669-1641. I would love to speak with you personally to discuss in more detail what is involved in being a BONJ Board Member. Help make a difference to BONJ and our community, keep the love of music alive!
Vice President, BONJ
