Peabody National Advisory Council
Robert J. Abernethy
Members of the National Advisory Council are advocates for the mission of the Peabody Institute and advise the Director on strategic issues and the development of new resources. Council members dedicate time and expertise and make financial commitments commensurate with their ability to give. Council members assume a leadership role as a donor and/or fundraiser in the Peabody campaign, and assist the Director and the External Relations staff in advancement efforts to build awareness and audiences, and to identify, cultivate and recruit potential donors to Peabody. Members of the Council may be leaders in the corporate and philanthropic communities, Johns Hopkins Trustees, and prominent Peabody alumni, parents and friends.
The National Advisory Council meets three times a year, often in conjunction with The Johns Hopkins University Trustees meetings.
