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 the development and workshopping of private sector-related tools and resources
  • Contributes to Artsblog with arts and business-related stories from their communities
  • Participates in research and program evaluations conducted by Americans for the Arts
  • Helps foster deeper connections between their local communities, the private sector, and Americans for the Arts
  • Plays a role in selecting the recipient of the annual Michael Newton Award
