The Vermilion Community Music Association has several performing arts groups sponsored by the Vermilion Community Music Association (VCMA). The VCMA is governed by a Board of Directors which has the primary goal of raising funds through corporate, private and public donations as well as planned giving. 

The Board enforces the Association's Constitution and Bylaws, conducts annual elections, and in general, works out the many details of VCMA business operations. Board members head various committees, such as Historian, Librarian, newsletter, fundraising and special committees, as needed. Board members are "musical ambassadors" to and for the greater Vermilion community of Northern Ohio, offering presentations and Association information when requested by clubs and service organizations.
