The League of Chicago Theatres is now accepting nominations to fill four upcoming vacancies on its Board of Directors. Nominees may be from any budget category theatre or a civic representative. Theater representatives must be from theaters that are full voting members of the League. Board members serve for 3 year terms.

Board Member Responsibilities
The role of the League is to promote, support and advocate for Chicago theater. As a board member, you are part of a dynamic team that will help guide the programs and priorities of the League. The board meets six times per year, and we also ask board members to serve on at least one standing League board committee: (committees currently include Marketing, Finance, Audit, and Member Services). Board members are expected to make meaningful and appropriate personal contributions to the board and its programs and are also expected to demonstrate leadership in encouraging member participation in League programs year-round.
