Since becoming President in November (thanks to Past President Jerry Smith for his efforts during his 2013-15 term), I have been working on the new Strategic Plan for ACCA. My first priority was the finalization of the new Vision and Mission statements that were drafted at the board planning retreat last September in Toronto.
Arts Consultants Canada / Consultants canadiens en arts (ACCA) members are valued contributors in a thriving, creative Canada.
Les membres de Arts Consultants Canada / Consultants canadiens en arts (ACCA) contribuent au rayonnement d’un Canada créatif et florissant.
ACCA strengthens the arts in Canada by connecting a network of experts with Canada’s arts community and by encouraging the active exchange of its members’ expertise to advance and promote the development of the sector.
L’ACCA renforce les arts au Canada en raccordant un réseau d’expert(e)s au secteur artistique canadien ainsi qu’en encourageant un échange actif d’expertise parmi ses membres pour favoriser le secteur.
These are now included in the new Strategic Plan 2015-18 document which I encourage you to read.
Thank you to all the ACCA members and volunteers for their efforts towards a thriving, creative Canada!
