LINKING ARTS ORGANISATIONS WITH BUSINESS PROFESSIONALS WILLING TO SERVE AS BOARD MEMBERS

The BASA BoardBank programme gives arts organisations access to passionate, skilled professionals as potential board members, and also acts as a connector for this professional who wants to engage with an arts organisation in a real and effective way. This is achieved by providing professionals with the opportunity to voluntarily sit on the board of an arts organisation, thereby helping make the arts sector more sustainable by improving corporate governance, while providing business professionals with the opportunity to expand their own social investment responsibility within the arts sector. BoardBank is currently operated as a bespoke service where arts organisations contact BASA with their board requirements to be directly linked with potential board members from BASA’s networks, and through networking events where they have the opportunity to present what they do and their board requirements, and then network with potential board members in the audience.
