This, our first newsletter, is an important step in ACCA’s development as a professional association and a reflection of our desire to strengthen our ties with consultants and clients.

Our mission is to advance and promote ethical, excellent and effective consulting in Canada’s arts and culture sector. We now have almost 60 consultant members who share this mission, ready to put their professional expertise to work to strengthen the sector. So I have two suggestions:

  • To all consultants, if you are not a member, and meet the criteria please consider joining this growing association of your peers.
  • To all arts organizations, government agencies and foundations, if you are looking for a consultant, check out our searchable database of members to find the consultant with the skills and expertise you require. Also, if you have a RFP, send it to us at and we will distribute it to the membership to ensure you have a robust and informed response.

ACCA’s vision is to be the nexus for arts consulting practice in Canada. With our professional development program, networking events, website and other communications strategies we are well on our way to realizing this vision.
