Officers and Directors



An elected board of directors oversees all phases of ARCS Foundation Pittsburgh. At board meetings, the work and progress of the committees are discussed. Officers of the Pittsburgh Board include president (or co-presidents), vice president, secretary, treasurer, and in some years, immediate past president/s or president-elect.

Committees include Communications, Finance, Fund Development, Membership, Nominating, Program, Planning, Scholar Relations, and University Relations. In addition, a non-Board member who plays a key leadership role is the chair of our Scholar Celebration held in the spring. Our Donor Appreciation Reception, held in the fall, is hosted by our university partners.

The fiscal year is July 1 –June 30, with the annual meeting held each May. The year’s largest event is the Scholar Celebration in the Spring, when the scholars present information about their work in highly interactive formats.
