The Private Sector Network of Americans for the Arts, which includes organizations like Arts & Business Councils and Business Committees for the Arts, works to promote the message that business sector support for the arts is integral to the success and longevity of the arts, and essential in building communities in which the business sector can thrive.

 

We are excited to celebrate the anniversaries of the following Private Sector Network members this year, who have spent decades working to build partnerships between business and the arts:


50 Years of Arts & Business Council of New York
Arts & Business Council Inc. was created in 1965 by a group of business leaders from the New York Board of Trade, with the purpose of creating closer ties between business and the arts. In 2005, Arts & Business Council Inc. merged with Americans for the Arts; ABC/NY is both a division of AFTA and still its own, separately incorporated nonprofit. With a suite of employee engagement opportunities, programs for college students and young professionals, and a digital matchmaking service for arts organizations / artists, and businesses, ABC/NY strives to continue building meaningful partnerships between the arts and business communities.

A suite of employee engagement opportunities–ranging from team volunteering to arts in the workplace–promotes a deeper level of engagement that can lead to mutually beneficial, long lasting partnerships. Looking forward, ABC/NY strives to continue building meaningful partnerships between the arts and business communities. - See more at: http://blog.americansforthearts.org/2015/08/06/happy-anniversary-to-the-arts-business-council-of-new-york-the-colorado-business-committee-for-the#sthash.JV4y8LuH.dpuf


30 Years of Colorado Business Committee for the Arts
This year marks the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts’ (CBCA) 30th Anniversary. CBCA has a proud legacy of advocating for the arts, championing corporate philanthropy, and convening both the business and cultural sectors to advance Colorado’s creative vitality. Through its advocacy and research efforts, CBCA communicates the positive effects of supporting the arts while honoring innovative partnerships, philanthropy, creative businesses, and leadership.


30 Years of New Hampshire Business Committee for the Arts
The New Hampshire Business Committee for the Arts was formed by leading businesses thirty years ago to educate, motivate, and recognize business support of and participation in the arts; advocate for the value of the arts in economic, social and community development; and facilitate people and projects that enhance engagement in the arts. The organization continues to be led by an outstanding board comprised of the CEOs of its member businesses and the executive director who was engaged thirty years ago to help found the organization.

 

30 Years of Arts & Business Council of Miami
Thirty years ago visionary leaders from the Miami-Dade Department of Cultural Affairs and Greater Miami Chamber got together to form the Arts & Business Council of Miami to help spearhead a cultural movement in the Miami community. As a vital partner to growth A&BC Miami activated the skills and resources of the corporate community to strengthen, enliven, and support the arts. Through civic triumphs and challenges, recessions and economic prosperity, natural disasters and momentous changes, the arts have played a leading role in making Miami into a global city and cosmopolitan destination. For three decades the Arts & Business Council of Miami (A&BC Miami) has provided significant capacity building to Miami-Dade’s cultural organizations through workshops, forums, and outreach that have grown the arts into a billion dollar industry.

 

30 Years of The Arts & Business Council of Chicago

The Arts & Business Council of Chicago offers a unique roster of resources including: pro-bono business consulting expertise; board and leadership development; new board member training and placement; marketing, management, financial training, fundraising and other workshops; and assessment tools–all to help build the capacity and sustainability of small- and mid-sized arts organizations. From individual programs, to the full incubation offered through the breadth of A&BC Chicago services, the goal is to give arts organizations the tools to build and maintain solid infrastructures so they can do what they do best: create!
