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 the region's nonprofit arts organizations via carefully matched pro-bono consulting projects. New BVAs are required to attend a 3-hour orientation before their first project to help translate their for-profit work experience to the nonprofit arts community. Registration is now open for the Summer 2017 Orientation Class taking place on Friday, August 4 from 2-5:00pm in downtown Chicago.The deadline to submit applications is July 27. After the orientation, the Arts & Business Council of Chicago sends out a bulletin twice a month to all registered BVAs with a list of open project opportunities. BVAs choose when to join a project (most of which are conducted in teams of 2-3 BVAs) based on their schedule. Once on a project, the average time commitment is approximately 10-15 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... To qualify, you must have a minimum of five years of professional managerial experience. A&BC specifically 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 Katie Kurcz (Director of Programs, Management Services) at (312) 372 1876 x104 or kkurcz@artsbiz-chicago.org For more information, visit our website: www.artsbiz-chicago.org
