Dear Local Arts Network Members,


As we are enduring August heat, and getting ready for school to start, it is again time for me to update you on Americans for the Arts’ Public Partner Activities. 


Since the last update, The United States Conference of Mayors, the National Lt. Governors Association, the National Conference of State Legislatures and the National Association of Counties have all had their annual meetings.   So, it has been a busy time!


As always, thanks for reading and please let me know if you have any questions about how your elected officials are involved in these associations.
