Our Board Bank scheme offers our business members the opportunity to become non-executive Directors or Trustees of an arts organisation. Members use it to offer their skillset in return for expanding their network and finding fresh perspectives to inspire their own organisation. We also run a separate development programme for young professionals. We place them on arts Boards to nurture their leadership capabilities and discover the roles and responsibilities of being a Board member. Our Skills Bank service matches a business professional with an arts manager to guide them through a short-term project with specific objectives.
