The Board of Directors of the Conference is an all-volunteer board that comprises participants and faculty members and holds winter, summer, and autumn meetings. The Board is responsible for ensuring that the Conference remains financially healthy and fulfills its mission to deliver high-level chamber music study and performance in the classical and new music repertoires.

The Board includes four officers (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer) and six standing committees (Executive, Finance, Nominating, Fundraising, Publicity and Public Relations, and Strategic Planning). Some key functions and tasks are supported by members of the Conference community who are not on the Board; we welcome expressions of interest from members of the community who would like to serve on a committee or offer volunteer time.
