Board Track

Want to develop a healthy and effective board?

Join the Alliance of Artists Communities for the Board Track - a day of workshops and discussions designed to help your organization develop a healthy, passionate board, embrace governance responsibilities, and build fundraising expertise.

Led by expert in board development, Susan Meier, the 2014 program includes highly interactive sessions, skill-building exercises, and role-playing to support your organization’s volunteer and staff leaders.

You can register for the board track only, or sign up for the full conference and attend the board track at no additional cost. Board members as well as senior staff are encouraged to attend. Discounts are avaliable for multiple attendees from the same organization. Lunch and refreshments provided.



 “A note of deep thanks for all that you contributed to our conference - we are so grateful for the time, energy and expertise that you gave to your sessions. And our folks clearly LOVED you – you truly commanded the room and the respect of those in it!”
- Jessica Balboni, Director of Learning Programs, League of American Orchestras
