Memberships and Sponsorships

The Chequamegon Bay Arts Council (CBAC) is a member-oriented organization.  Anyone interested in the arts is encouraged to become a member.  Funds generated through membership are used to support the local grant program, publish a quarterly newsletter, maintain the website, and cover other general operational expenses. CBAC is run by an all-volunteer Board of Directors, who receive no monetary compensation for their work.
