Creative Alliance Milwaukee Update

October 27, 2011



We are pleased to announce that the Creative Alliance Board has
approved a new strategic planning direction this week.  We are very excited about what we will be announcing shortly!

As part of our strategic planning process, we're working to enhance our services and are interested in your perspective on how well we are delivering services to you and the value of your membership. To that end, we will be holding two listening sessions (one for members, one for non-members) in November - more details to follow shortly. 


Below, please find a few arts discussions and updates, world renowned exhibits currently showcasing in Milwaukee, a new twist on our featured gigs, linking you to the best resources to our knowledge (you can still post jobs!) and a warm welcome to our newest member.
