Olympic Theatre Arts is organized into a structure that includes an Executive Committee comprised of the Chairman, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Business Manager, and Facilities Manager.  The Trustees chair participates in committees functioning in the areas of: Development (fund development, membership development), Production (coordinating the all-volunteer production teams), Personnel (paid staff and volunteers), Building and Renovation (operations and maintenance, design, planning and execution of the project), Marketing, Education (workshops), Board Education (training and orientation, board retreat, recruiting Trustees), Strategic Planning, and, importantly, a Comprehensive Campaign Committee dedicated to all the elements of a successful fund drive.  These committees' successes can be seen in the goals they have established, and reached to date.
