At the Maryland State Arts Council, July is a month for reflecting on the past year’s initiatives while discussing new goals and next steps. The staff, Council and I are excited to share MSAC's new strategic plan at seven Regional Arts Institutes in September. The Institutes will provide an opportunity for statewide constituents to learn about new strategies to improve our services while asking for recommended actions. Dialogue with constituents drives every decision we make and I look forward to our next discussion.
