The Arts & Business Council of Chicago helps organizations like IHSAE do this by building working relationships between the members of arts and cultural organizations and highly-qualified business professionals, providing training in all aspects of management and board function, and highlighting research in leading and emerging issues related to the world of arts nonprofits.
