I’m happy to report that I’ve been elected to the Americans for the Arts Emerging Leader Council, a national volunteer advisory committee, for a term beginning next month and ending in 2012. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Americans for the Arts and everybody associated with the Emerging Leader Program in the past year, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to play a role in its continuing progress. Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.

UPDATE: Here’s the complete list of new inductees.

  • Congratulations, Ian. Well deserved!


  • Ian,

    My congratulations as well (now that you are back). Given what I read here, you are an excellent addition to the Council. Hopefully your new position will allow you to do some sharing of their deliberations and actions with the rest of us. -twl
