)-- Champlain College, a private baccalaureate institution that offers professionally focused programs balanced by an interdisciplinary core curriculum, has announced that Jayson Boyers, managing director of the Division of Continuing Professional Studies, will serve on the board of directors for Burlington City Arts (BCA). The board is responsible for planning and working with BCA staff and the City of Burlington to develop and promote top quality art experiences across the city.
Boyers’ BCA board membership is the latest addition to his extensive record of service to community and charitable causes. He also is a member of the Hunger Free Vermont board of directors, which seeks to end hunger and promote nutrition across the state. Previously, he served on several nonprofit boards including Wake Education Partnership, the MLK Montessori School Board and the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce board of advisors.
BCA has served the cultural and artistic needs of the greater Burlington area for more than 30 years. Its vision is to fuse a dynamic relationship between the arts and community, nurture creativity and imagination, and ignite a passion for learning through the arts. BCA operates a range of arts programs throughout the city and has established The BCA Center (formerly the Firehouse Gallery) as one of the few exhibition spaces in the state dedicated to showcasing contemporary art. The BCA Center and BCA’s Print + Clay Studio enable BCA to present an integrated series of art experiences that help set it apart from other art centers across the country. The efforts of BCA have helped cement Burlington’s reputation as one of America’s most livable cities for the arts. Its board of directors meetings are held quarterly and are open to the public.
