Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Forecast will continue to strengthen the synergy between our core programs serving communities and artists. Assist 25 communities and 300 artists. Host three professional networking events and three cross-sector dialogues for artists and non-arts leaders. Publish two issues of Public Art Review and 100 online posts. 2: Forecast will increase staff capacity to meet needs of existing and new constituencies. Implement board-approved hire of new executive director by July 2016. Formalize founding executive director’s role as director of community services (CS). Draft business plan for CS, maximizing impact on Minnesota communities.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Assisted 25+ communities, 312 artists. Hosted four professional networking events, three cross-sector dialogues. Published two issues of PAR, 122 online posts. Staff collected and tracked information and data related to these activities. This data was analyzed to determine if we met these projected numbers and subsequently strengthened the synergy between our core programs and serving communities/ artists. 2: Theresa Sweetland was hired as new Executive Director and the founding ED successfully transitioned their role. Following the Board hiring the new ED, they worked with staff to implement an effective transition strategy so the founding ED could focus efforts on drafting a business plan for CS and growing the department.
