If you are a current board member or staff leader of an arts & culture nonprofit and interested in additional education, you can join our board training sessions. Sessions are held on Saturdays from 9am-1pm in downtown Chicago. There are four sessions to complete the full training curriculum. However, if you are looking for education on a specific topic, you may attend a single session.
