Board & Staff

Unison is looking for new members of the Board of Directors. Do you have what it takes?

Unison Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors share a commitment to Unison’s core values: excellence, inclusion, learning and financial health.

For 38 years Unison has played a key role in contributing to the vitality of New Paltz and surrounding towns in the Hudson Valley. The Board envisions Unison as a place where our community experiences the arts and connects in an intimate and inviting atmosphere; an arts center that presents nationally and regionally known performers, films, lectures, classes and other cultural programming; a resource that draws upon the artistic and academic talent in the area to entertain, challenge, and enrich our lives. Our Unison is a newly-reorganized vibrant heart of an already vital community.

Unison has a responsibility to serve and respond to the changing needs of the community. Please help us by sharing your ideas for what you would like to see happen at Unison – your views on what the Unison of the future should be. We are eager to hear from you.  Please send your thoughts to us by email at info@unisonarts.org.
