Board Committees

The Saskatchewan Arts Board uses advisory processes to gather input on a wide range of general and specific issues, in accordance with The Arts Board Act, 1997. The processes are designed so the Arts Board may maintain regular and direct contact with you on important issues affecting the arts, and fulfill its mandate to create an environment in which the arts thrive for the benefit of everyone in Saskatchewan.

Below is a listing of active committees, advisory panels and their members:

The Executive Committee helps to ensure the effective governance of the Agency by providing effective and timely guidance to both the Chair and the Chief Executive Officer on emerging, time-sensitive, significant issues arising between meetings of the Board of Directors.

The Finance Committee advises and makes recommendations with respect to significant planning, performance and reporting matters of the Chief Executive Officer and/or his designate, relating to the management of the Saskatchewan Arts Board's financial activity and well-being.
