Business Volunteers for the Arts (BVA) is the flagship program of the Arts & Business Council of Chicago, and offers a unique link between volunteers with business expertise and Chicago's nonprofit arts organizations via carefully matched pro-bono consulting projects.

New BVAs are required to attend an orientation before their first project to help translate their for-profit work experience to the nonprofit arts community. BVAs choose when to join a project based on their schedule. Once on a project, the average time commitment is approximately 15-20 hours per month, and projects last between 2-6 months.

BVA project areas include: business planning, communications planning, financial planning, HR, marketing/branding, market research, operational analyses, retreat facilitations, and strategic planning...

A&BC looks for candidates with expertise in marketing, public relations, strategic and business planning, accounting and financial management, information technology and human resources.

If you're ready to get more involved in the arts and would like to apply your business skills as a pro-bono consultant for the Arts & Business Council, contact Noemi Garcia at ngarcia@artsbiz-chicago.org or fill out an application here: http://fs11.formsite.com/artsbiz1200/BVAVolunteerAppForm/index.html.
