The Women’s Guild

The purpose of the Women’s Board is to provide financial and organizational support for the Kankakee Valley Symphony Orchestra Association and to work with the KVSO in offering cultural and educational activities to the community.

The KVSO Women’s Board began as a “guild” in 1967 and evolved into our current KVSOWB in 1984. The 2006-2007 season brought the KVSOWB the Illinois Council of Orchestra’s “Guild of the Year” award. The Women’s Board consists of 30 seats. The board members are proposed and chosen for their expressed interest in and willingness to work diligently to further the purposes of the organization. A representative of the Women’s Board attends the monthly meeting of the KVSO as an active voting member.
