Meet the Board of Directors

The energetic, enthusiastic, competent PVTC Board oversees both the classes and productions of the Portola Valley Children’s Conservatory and the MainStage productions of the theater. When Valley Presbyterian Church founded the Conservatory in 1994, it was determined that at least one Board member would also be members of the Board of Valley Presbyterian Church, in order to maintain the church/conservatory connection. Other PVTC Board members are past and present parent members of the PVTC community.
