They have shown their commitment to the Opera by donating at the Allegro member level, sharing their knowledge, and giving their time. Subject to the approval of the Nominating and Governance Committee, they are invited to become members of the Board. The Board of Directors meets eight times annually  to receive reports from the working committees, to vote on the annual budget, and to attend to other matters of governance.
