We’re excited to announce our Winter class of On BOARD candidates. The On BOARD candidates are in the early stages of their exploration phase to find an arts & cultural organization that best aligns with their passion and skills. We look forward to seeing the connections these individuals will make with our participating arts organizations.
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.
Through the On BOARD Program, arts organizations have the opportunity to meet with and recruit newly trained board members.
Check out this Winter’s participating arts organizations:
Since 1999, The Arts & Business Council of Chicago has matched over 300 business professionals to nonprofit boards in the Chicago area. On BOARD graduates serve proudly on their boards, meaningfully contributing not just to the organization they serve, but to Chicago’s arts community at large.
The Arts & Business Council of Chicago is committed to helping strengthen non-profit arts organizations. We do this by building working relationships between arts organizations and highly-qualified business professionals, providing training in all aspects of management and board function, and conducting research in leading and emerging issues related to the world of arts nonprofits.
