Role of Advisory Panels

The advisory panels of the Virginia Commission for the Arts make recommendations and give guidance that will affect the future of the arts in the Commonwealth. The quality and integrity of the Commission’s decision-making depend upon the individual contributions of time, thought, and energy of these volunteers.
