state arts action network
The State Arts Action Network (SAAN) is led by the SAAN Council—a board of 15 members who oversee and guide the network’s activities. The council, in consultation with Americans for the Arts, establishes the network’s policy guidelines, activities, and goals. Within the council, the Governance Committee drafts operating and election procedures, membership criteria, and ex-officio member recommendations. The Programs Committee develops and reviews questions for research; profiles projects, website content, and listserv activity; and sets the professional development agenda for SAAN conference calls and workshops.
The State Arts Action Network holds three optional meetings each year- one in conjunction with Arts Advocacy Day, the second immediately prior to the Annual Convention and the third in October.
