Members' Meeting and Reception

Arts Alliance Illinois hosts an annual Members’ Meeting and Reception to give voice to new ideas in the field while giving stakeholders the opportunity to come together with colleagues from across the state for conversation, networking, and fellowship.

In 2012, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin joined us to share his insights into the importance of the arts, humanities, and education and the challenges facing the cultural sector in this political and legislative environment.
