Dear Local Arts Network Listser,


Nominations for AFTA’s annual leadership awards have been extended! Nominate arts leaders from your community for one of seven 2018 Annual Leadership Awards, including the Selena Roberts Ottum Award for Local Arts Leadership .

The Selena Roberts Ottum Award for Local Arts Leadership recognizes outstanding contributions in the local arts agency field. Nominees do not need to be members of AFTA, but the nominators do. Please note that if you are doing fantastic work, you are allowed to nominate yourself!
