All of Americans for the Arts’ Network Councils advise staff on programs and services that will build a deeper connection to the field and the network membership. Elected annually by our membership, council members are national leaders who give back to the field by connecting the national work of Americans for the Arts to our members’ work on the local level.
The State Arts Action Network (SAAN) is led by the SAAN Council – a board of 15 members who oversee and guide the network’s activities. The council, in consultation with Americans for the Arts, establishes the network’s policy guidelines, activities, and goals. Within the council, the Governance Committee drafts operating and election procedures, membership criteria, and ex-officio member recommendations. The Programs Committee develops and reviews questions for research; profiles projects, website content, and listserv activity; and sets the professional development agenda for SAAN conference calls and workshops.
This will be Triplett’s first three-year term on the SAAN Council.
