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 and how to be effective ambassadors for the organization they join.

Through the On BOARD Program, arts & cultural organizations meet with and recruit newly trained board members. In the past year these organizations have matched with an On BOARD graduate:
Since 1999, more than 300 individuals have joined Chicago-area nonprofit boards through On BOARD. On BOARD graduates proudly serve 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.
