Four individuals joined our Business Volunteers for the Arts® (BVA) corps in September 2022.

They bring skills and business disciplines representing systems thinking, data analysis, organizational and change management, market research & competitive analysis, communications, branding, community & civic engagement, event planning,  and  strategic planning.

Please join us in welcoming our newest volunteers!

Our next BVA Orientation is in January 2023.
