Invite ACAAC

Please consider inviting ACAAC Staff and Board Members to any public event that may include donor recognition as part of the programming. Public acknowledgment of ACAAC funding, particularly when a staff, board member, or local legislator is present, allows arts audiences to understand the connection between the vote they cast for local officials, the local official’s support of ACAAC funding, and how that funding returns to our community. Please send all invitations to [email protected]
