Advisory Board

The Delta Cultural Center is advised by an 11 member advisory board appointed by the Governor which meets quarterly. The advisory board positions are designated to represent a broad range of interests: Helena community, Blues musicians, Historians, and Delta residents.

The staff of the Delta Cultural Center appreciates the support of these volunteer board members. Their input and feedback is very important to us in our planning and implementation of programs, exhibits, and special events.
