The Arts & Business Council of Chicago's On BOARD Program promotes board service as an opportunity for leadership development and civic engagement. Program participants attend four half-day trainings and learn the fundamentals of board service including nonprofit phases of development, finances and tax issues, legal responsibilities, and fundraising. Participants also attend a networking event at the start of the program where they meet arts organizations and explore opportunities for board service.
