Most of the conference goers are on their way home today. Only a small group of motivated board members tend to stay behind in order to “make it happen” at the semiannual WCA board meeting. Gathered in NYC’s Bello restaurant, the board works on planning upcoming conferences, maintaining fiduciary responsibilities, addressing the needs of chapters and members, as well as planning programs to ensure the health of this wonderful non-profit arts organization. Have you ever wondered about how you can become more involved nationally? Consider volunteering at an upcoming conference, participating on a board committee, or even filling a board position! No matter what your knowledge of board roles are, or where you are in your art career, participating nationally on anyone of these levels can lead to new connections, friendships, leadership experiences and insight into the world of arts organizations.
