BCAA works with artists and arts organizations from a wide variety of disciplines. One of our goals is to assist artists and arts organizations in developing community and a network of support by increasing visibility and communication.
Here is a link to Rules to Run a 501c3 Organization. This is an extremely informative document by Ken Ransford, Attorney at Law, CPA. Ken spoke at the Colorado Creative Industries Conference in May 2016 and was kind enough to share his notes.
