Governing Membership provides those most interested in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra with an opportunity to get involved, be heard, and have unparalleled access.

There are no obligations, only opportunities. From serving on committees to attending events, Governing Membership is your backstage pass to the CSO.

Governing Members (GMs) are nominated by the GM Nominations & Membership Committee to a three-year renewable term. A minimum of $10,500 must be contributed throughout each term.

A minimum gift of $3,500 to the GM Annual Fund each year is required.
