Board to Boards Meeting

The Cultural Alliance's board to boards meeting will be held June 20 at the Strand. It will be so exciting because, for the first time, we have engaged a nationally known expert to help guide our discussions. Mark Brewer, CEO of the Community Foundation of Central Florida, and keynote speaker at the upcoming Americans for the Arts Convention, will present his views on philanthropy and where its headed ****hint - while charitable giving is reaching record levels, giving to the arts has DECREASED.

We need to find out what we can do, the Alliance and its members, to reverse that trend.Mark will help us figure out how we can do that - not just as a stop gap measure, but 10 or 20 years in the future. He will help us fly at 50,000 feet!

If you are a board member of one of our nine members, or an interested person, please mark your calendar now and take advantage of this fabulous opportunity. We'll provide more details as they become available. AND - we're eager for your ideas and feedback both before and after Mark's presentation. I am looking forward to hearing from you!
