Upcoming SMART Growth Panel - The Role of Board Chairs

SMART Growth Panel – The Role of Board Chairs

We are planning our second forum to focus attention on the important role played by Board members in the evolution of an arts organization.  It will be held on Tuesday, February 18th at the Chicago Community Trust, which is located at  225 N Michigan Ave.

We  will begin with wine and snacks from 5:00-5:30.  The panel presentation will be from5:30 – 7:00.  It will feature the Board Chairs from five arts organizations at different phases of development:

  1. Evan La Ruffa, Founder and Chair of I Paint My Mind
  2. Randall West, Chair of Access Contemporary Music
  3. Vicki Woolner Samuels, Chair of Changing Worlds
  4. Joe Brady, Chair of Lookingglass Theatre
  5. King Harris, Chair of the MCA (and a member of the Trust Executive Committee)

This session is designed for Board leaders from SMART Growth grant recipient organizations and is being held in the evening to accommodate their schedules.  We will allow room for Executive Directors if they are accompanied by a Board leader.

Please RSVP to Rebecca Dill at with the name of all attendees or questions.

We recommend public transportation but there is parking located at the Michigan Plaza Parking Garage on the lower level of Lake Street or ABM Parking Garage located at 111 East Wacker Drive on the north end of Illinois Center. (Ask Rebecca in your RSVP if you want detailed map and rates.)  Attendees will need to bring a photo ID to sign in with our building security.

We look forward to meeting your current Board Chair!
