Dear Friend of the Arts, 

As part of our Strategic Plan process we are conducting a survey. This confidential survey will take about 10 to 15 minutes of your time and is to be completed by 5p.m. on August 28, 2012.


We strongly encourage people to become engaged in this process, and to inform others they know who also have an interest, but might not ordinarily participate. We are making every effort to involve the broadest range of people throughout Illinois because of the value the Illinois Arts Council places on diverse perspectives concerning the arts in our state.


If you have questions or comments, please contact Jerome Grand, Strategic Plan Operations Manager, at jerome.grand@illinois.gov or at Illinois Arts Council, Thompson Center, 100 W Randolph, Ste 10-500, Chicago, IL 60601.


Your input is crucial to the development of our 2013 - 2020 Strategic Plan. The plan is targeted for completion in mid-November 2012 and will be made available on our website.



Thank you,


-Shirley R. Madigan
