Posted on: August 23rd, 2013 by GALA Communications GALA Articles No Comments

Eve Campbell has worked in the Not- For-Profit industry all of her adult life and loves being involved in mission driven experiences. As an early member of The Women’s Chorus of Dallas she found her passion for the gay and lesbian choral movement. She served as the Executive Director of TWCD for over ten years and currently works as a consultant to non-profit arts organizations. Eve has served on numerous non-profit boards including the GALA Choruses board, with a term as president during the Festival Year 2000 in San Jose, CA. During her time with the GALA Choruses board Eve began working with member chorus boards to help with strategic planning, crisis intervention, annual planning, fund development strategies and other board issues. Since her first GALA Choruses consult in 1998, she has had over 100 consults with different choruses and other non-profits, many multiple times, as repeat requests have been frequent. She has also presented at Leadership Conferences, Festival and Artistic Director and Manager’s meeting. Recognized as both a community leader and a leader in the gay and lesbian choral movement, Eve has received numerous awards including the Legacy Award from GALA Choruses (the organization’s highest honor), the Extra Mile Award for service to the Dallas gay and lesbian community and a lifetime membership award with the Women’s Chorus of Dallas.

How exciting to be part of the 411 advisers for our membership choruses! I look forward to our working together. Board functioning affects every area of the chorus and this is a good thing… or not. It really works best if the board truly leads instead of the all-too-familiar scenario of being pulled along by the momentum of the artistic product. How do you get the board working at its best? Call me! Here are some of the issues we can discuss.

  • Governance
  • Strategic Planning
  • Human Resource Issues
  • Perpetuating the Board Responsibly
  • Legal Responsibilities
  • Financial Management
  • Fund Development
  • Managing Organizational Programs
  • Board & Staff Relationship
  • Crises Intervention

All the best to you as you begin a new season of magic!
