Board Members

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra currently has a Board consisting of 10 members who provide guidance, leadership, and support to the orchestra and their staff.

The position is voluntary and Board members are elected for a period initially of 3 years but may be re-elected for a further term if wished.  The Board encourages this policy of rotation to encourage new members, fresh ideas and to ensure stability and continuity.

We welcome applications at any time for new Board members who are interested in the work and future of the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra.  If appointed, they will be given personal guide to the SNJO’s work and an induction pack of information. Please contact us for more information.
