The State Arts Action Network network was formed on March 29, 2004, when Americans for the Arts announced that two previously independent national arts organizations, the State Arts Advocacy League of America and the National Community Arts Network, had ratified an agreement to become part of Americans for the Arts.

Shortly thereafter, in our strategic plan, Americans for the Arts identified the need for a statewide advocacy organization and a statewide service organization in every state. This goal is something that Americans for the Arts and SAAN continually work toward, involving other strategic partners and alliances. In 2009, for example, the members of the Kennedy Center Alliance for Arts Education joined the SAAN as affiliate members.
