Thinking about an arts non-profit board?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I know what you’re thinking. Board members of non-profit arts organizations have money and connections and are executives at major companies or have years of experience in the arts community. Some of them do. Especially in the larger and more established arts organizations that require board members to be significant rain makers. But most organizations aren’t ready for a board like that. Most organizations need things that you already have — a passion for the arts, a desire to make a difference, and an outside perspective.

What you don’t have is the opportunity to get connected with an organization that interests you and that values what you bring to the table.

Fortunately, at least for those of you here in Nashville, the Arts and Business Council of Greater Nashville offers a board matching program that combines training with a matching event where you can meet with representatives of local arts organizations. The training provides an overview of the arts industry and covers topics such as governance, fundraising, financials, and strategy — I’ll be covering that one.

If you’re interested, open the link below for more information. I hope to see you at that strategy session.
