Please join us!  Topics, details and information below.








Newtown, PA  - - The Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County is holding the
second in its series of affordable, accessible educational seminars.  This
session, entitled, "Financial Guidance for Artists & Non-Profits," will be
held Wednesday, May 10, 2006, 9am - 3:30pm at the County Theater, 20 E.
State Street in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.  Artists and arts, history and
cultural organizations in the area are invited -- and encouraged -- to
attend.  The seminar is free for members of the Arts & Cultural Council; $15
for individual non-members; and $35 for organization non-members. 


There will be two tracks for attendees - one for artists (visual, performing
or literary), and one for non-profit arts, history and cultural
organizations.  Artists will attend for a half-day, hearing two speakers
discuss "Artists' Estate Planning" and "Small Business & Tax Issues for
Artists."  Featured speakers, who have generously donated their time for
this event, will be Roberta Barsotti, Vice President and Senior Wealth
Planner with PNC Bank; and Robert H. McLaren, a CPA with McLaren & Company,
PC, in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.  


Non-profit arts, history and cultural organizations will attend a full-day
workshop presented by the nationally recognized Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF)
entitled, "Assets At Work: The Balancing Act."  This popular seminar advises
non-profits on improving ways to get and use money.  It will address the
challenge of balancing mission, programs, and infrastructure needs with an
organization's capital structure to help secure long-term viability.  In
addition, the Arts & Cultural Council has arranged a reduced registration
rate for this presentation of $35 for non-members (the normal fee is $85 per
person), and free for members, enabling more area organizations to
participate.  Registrants are encouraged to also sign up for 15-minute
individual consultations with NFF staff from 3:30pm - 5pm.  The Nonprofit
Finance Fund, headquartered in New York City with offices around the
country, including Philadelphia, assists non-profits across the country.  


Registration and coffee begins at 8:30am, and the Seminar begins at 9am.
The Artists' track concludes at 12:15pm; the Organizations' track will break
for lunch, and then conclude at 3:30pm.

and attend workshops for free as members.  


This second in a series of professional development workshops is just one of
the newly formed Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County's activities.  The
non-profit Council's mission is to serve as a center for networking,
information and technical assistance among this region's extraordinary
artistic and cultural communities.  


All people involved in the arts or history in Bucks County are invited to
utilize the Arts & Cultural Council's services, and become involved as
members.  In 2006, the Council will be conducting workshops, creating
networking opportunities, and developing an interactive website for
communication among its artistic membership and the public.  


A major endeavor in 2006 will be compiling the Directory for the Arts in
Bucks County.  This comprehensive directory will list contact information
for area artists, and arts, history and cultural organizations, organized by
category for easy reference.  



The Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County is supported in part by a grant
from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Dept. of Community & Economic
Development; and the Grundy Foundation.
