Jan 11, 2017

The National Guild for Community Arts Education and the San Francisco Arts Commission are pleased to invite you to participate in the initial Program Planning Meeting for the Guild’s 2017 Conference for Community Arts Education. In addition to the meeting we are also hosting a free workshop, "Developing Your Fundraising Community", with fundraising and organizational development expert Stephanie Roth. These events, which include a complimentary networking lunch, will be presented at the Mission Cultural Center in San Francisco, Wednesday, February 8, from 10:00AM to 4:00PM.

You may RSVP for one or both of these events at this link. The agenda is as follows:

10:00am – 1:00pm PT: Program Planning Meeting and Networking Lunch
The Program Planning Meeting provides leaders in arts education with an opportunity to shape the Conference for Community Arts Education (November 15 - 18, 2017, San Francisco, CA and Bay Area) by identifying critical issues and opportunities affecting the field. Our goal is to have a diverse and representative group from the region at this public meeting. The conference annually brings together 700+ leaders in arts education and adjacent sectors to explore effective strategies and innovative ideas for increasing equitable access to arts learning opportunities in communities across the country.

1:00pm – 4:00pm PT: “Developing Your Fundraising Community” with Stephanie Roth
If you work in nonprofits, you are probably well acquainted with the struggles of fundraising for the important work your organization does. Yet one resource that many organizations don’t make the most of is their own community of non-development staff, board members and volunteers to help raise money. Whether you’re a large organization with a strong development department, a small grassroots group with no dedicated fundraising staff, or something in between, this session will address ways your organizational community can help strengthen, expand, and energize your fundraising efforts.

Register for the 2017 Conference Planning Meeting and Fundraising Workshop.
