“Without question, all successful board members must possess two essential qualities: integrity and an open mind.

Board members must be people of principle. On a board, any appearance of shady or slick dealings is altogether out of the question.

Any conflict of interest, actual or perceived, is troublesome in deliberations and potentially damaging to the organization.

The best trustees bring to the table neither their prejudices nor their own agendas. … They aren’t stuck on winning every issue. They are team players.”

--Fisher Howe, in Welcome to the Board

ADVISORY BOARD OF PROFESSIONALS

If all goes as planned, North Texas Broadway Theatres will break ground by Spring 2021 - after we've had a feasibility study completed, an architect has been identified and hired to design a world-class performing arts center, blue prints have been created, money has been raised, and leadership staff has been identified to run this entertainment/theatrical complex.  We anticipate that it will be a long and difficult task, but we know that it can be done — but only with your help!  

 

With that in mind, we must put together an Advisory Board of professionals. This advisory board will be a body that provides non-binding strategic advice to us, the management of NTBT Foundation. They will not have any formal legal responsibilities.  The informal nature of an advisory board gives greater flexibility in structure and management compared to the board of directors. We need people of high standing in the following disciplines:

Film, Television, Publishing, Merchandising on and off line, Website Development, Software, Social Media, Internet Gaming, Public Relations, Marketing, Advertising, Legit Theatre Professionals, Choreographers, Artistic Directors, Set and Costume Design, Lighting design, Entertainment Attorneys, Mergers and Acquisition Specialists, IT Technical Directors, Performing Arts Center Exec's, Artistic Producers and Operations pro's.

 

This would require almost no time-No meetings just part of the North Texas Broadway Theatres Family as 'go-to' pros we can speak to about specific challenges, concerns, procedures, problems, issues etc.

 

We can and would be delighted to provide additional information on the project if requested.

Local & National Celebrity Advisory Board 

Similar in all respects to the above mentioned Advisory Board of Professionals, the Celebrity Advisory Board will be comprised of Local, Regional, and National famous, renowned and high standing individuals in the following disciplines:

Hollywood Film, National and Local Television, Broadway Theatre, Actors, Directors, Producers, Award Winning Professionals, Journalists and News Anchors, Sports Athletes, and heralded Musicians.

As above, this service would require almost no time-No meetings just part of the North Texas Broadway Theatres Family.  We ask that you grant us permission to utilize your name as celebrity advocates for NTBT's existence and future plans, be it on letterhead, print, online, and on-air.

We can and would be delighted to provide additional information on the project if requested.
