San Francisco Chamber Of Commerce Board Room

Take your skills beyond the workplace.
Connect your business the community.

The program teaches you the skills you need to be a board member of a non-profit arts organization.

Learn skills to set yourself apart from the crowd & help the arts thrive.

Business Arts Council’s Board Leadership Training Program is a two evening interactive learning experience offering participants the opportunity to put their business skills to good use in a nonprofit arts environment. Explore best practices in board leadership with like-minded business professionals and senior arts managers from Cultural Odyssey, African-American Shakespeare Company, California Shakespeare Theater and American Bach Soloists.

The training features a "make believe" case study of an arts organization facing real-world challenges and a mock board meeting you’ll participate in alongside guest arts managers who not only work in the arts now, but who are also from groups currently seeking new board members.
