Dear Americans for the Arts Members,


Would you like to take on an active role as a member of Americans for the Arts? Or know of a standout arts professional from your community whose ideas could benefit the field? Americans for the Arts wants you!

Advisory Council Members advise Americans for the Arts staff on programming and services, as defined by Americans for the Arts staff, in order to build a deeper connection to Americans for the Arts members and the arts and culture field as a whole. Specific roles may vary depending on the focus and needs of the topic area for which the Advisory Council is responsive.

We invite you to submit nominations for the following advisory councils:

Nominations close Friday, October 4, 2019 at 5:00 PM EST and can be submitted by filling out the nomination form. Members and non-members are welcome to submit nominations; however, nominees must be members of Americans for the Arts. For questions about membership, visit our online Member center or contact

All nominations will be reviewed for the ballot by current advisory council members. Incoming advisory council members for the 2020-2022 term will be established by a popular vote by Americans for the Arts members in November.
