Directors

The Diablo Regional Arts Association is governed by 28 expert, highly engaged East Bay business and community leaders who work passionately to ensure that the DRAA achieves its mission to make the Lesher Center for the Arts the premier cultural center in the East Bay. Our Board members accomplish this mission by involving themselves directly in DRAA’s work to promote high-quality artistic, education, and community outreach programs at the Lesher Center. They donate generously to the DRAA themselves, participate in our fundraisers and use their extensive professional and community networks to raise the profiles of DRAA and Lesher Center’s programs in the East Bay and beyond.
