The Private Sector Council is an advisory group charged with helping Americans for the Arts develop and implement private sector advocacy programs, and to serve as leaders to other local arts agencies seeking to connect with the private sector. Every year, Americans for the Arts invites all members to nominate themselves or a colleague to the Private Sector Council.

The council:

  • Meets with Americans for the Arts' staff quarterly, twice in person and twice over the phone
  • Assists with programming webinars and other professional development sessions
  • Contributes to the Artsblog with stories from their communities and more
  • Participates in research and program evaluations conducted by Americans for the Arts
  • Helps foster deeper connections between their local communities and Americans for the Arts
  • Plays a role in selecting the recipient of the annual Michael Newton Leadership Award
