Emeritus Society

The Emeritus Society was formed in 2007 to honor the tremendous contributions made by former Trustees of Dayton Live (formerly Victoria Theatre Association) and Art Center Foundation Boards.

The Emeritus Society provides opportunities for former Trustees to reconnect with Dayton Live, meet current staff and Trustees and offers unique experiences to bring old and new friends together.
