ACCA Members are all acknowledged arts consultants who adhere to the association’s Code of Professional Conduct and are accepted into the Association through a peer-juried process.

  • Providing networking opportunities with other arts consultants working in the field in Canada; and
  • Providing a forum for discussion of issues of concern to the arts and professional consultants.


To serve artists, arts organizations, funders, public policy-makers and, by extension, arts audiences in Canada by:

  • Identifying a body of skilled, experienced and knowledgeable colleagues;
  • Recommending qualifications, ethics and practices for arts consultants;
  • Offering opportunities for the exchange of knowledge and development of the field; and
  • Promoting the use of experienced and qualified professionals in the field.
