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.

If you are serving on a board or not seeking a board at this time, the fee to go through the training portion is $500 for all four sessions or a flat $150 fee for an individual session. We offer 4 partial scholarships per session to current A&BC arts clients who would like to purchase the four class pack.

You may register for a single training session or purchase the class pack here.

If you are an arts organization and would like to apply for a scholarship, please submit an application so we can learn more about you! We will reach out with more information and how to register for the four class pack.
