All state arts agency executive directors, deputies, chairs and council members are invited to the NASAA 2017 Leadership Institute in October.

About Leadership Institutes

This semiannual gathering is tailored to the learning and networking needs of top state arts agency leaders, staff and board appointees. Leadership Institutes are retreat-style convenings involving about 150 agency representatives. The smaller scale lends Leadership Institutes to in-depth policy discussions and high quality connections with colleagues from across the nation.

Where and When?

This year's gathering, hosted by the Oregon Arts Commission, will take place in Portland, Oregon. The "City of Roses" is renowned for its natural splendor, a vibrant arts sector, a fun-filled nonconformist spirit … and a fiercely competitive artisan doughnut scene!

Leadership Institute events will kick off the evening of Wednesday, October 11, with an opening reception. The opening ceremonies and annual Roll Call of the States begin bright and early Thursday, October 12. Sessions addressing the top policy concerns and leadership challenges facing state arts agencies will take place all day Thursday and Friday, wrapping up at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 13.

Consider coming early to explore Portland or sit in on the NASAA Board of Directors meeting Wednesday afternoon. Or stay over the weekend to immerse yourself in Powell's City of Books (the nation's largest independent bookseller), enjoy local attractions or do some tax-free holiday shopping.
