TimeLine’s Three Branches
TimeLine Theatre Company has three bodies at the heart of its operations: a Board of Directors; a team of Company Members; and an administrative staff. While each has its own clearly defined role and works independently, it is imperative for the health of the organization that all three bodies also work in tandem and in harmony.
Vision, Mission, and Values
As part of our strategic planning process (see below), TimeLine regularly reviews and reaffirms the vision, mission, and values that guide our organization.
TimeLine’s mission is rooted in an exploration of how history informs our world today. We recognize that to truly embody that mission and deepen the conversations we wish to have together, it’s essential that we grapple with how systemic racism, oppression, and exclusion have shaped our country, industry, and company.
As far back as 2001, TimeLine has believed in the importance of strategic planning to ensure we have a unified vision, shared values, and collectively articulated goals to push the organization forward. Over the years, we’ve developed an uninterrupted series of three-year plans (the first one spanning 2002 – 2005), continually evolving our methods of tackling those plans and executing those visions. With each iteration, we’ve updated, refined, and adapted, while using the collaborative planning process to dream big, together. It’s been a big part of TimeLine’s growth and success, and in 2009 we were proud to be awarded the Richard Goodman Strategic Planning Award in the Non-Profit category from the Association for Strategic Planning.

As a tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization, TimeLine annually files the IRS Form 990 to share information about our mission, programs, operations, and finances. You can review 990s for TimeLine (and hundreds of other non-profits) via GuideStar. Here are links to some of our recent filings:
