Why Join the Eastern Iowa Arts Academy’s Young Professionals Board?

The EIAA Young Professionals Board supports the arts community through fundraising efforts and volunteer activities. Board members will play an active role in educating Cedar Rapids and the surrounding vicinity by raising funds, and continuing to develop partnerships between the EIAA and our community. Board membership will foster leadership skills, improve social and professional networks, and build new relationships not only with other members, but with artists and musicians throughout Cedar Rapids. Potential members will learn about the importance of the arts for children and adults, understand the way the arts save lives, build self-esteem and give children a safe place to create and grow. Finally, members will meet a wonderful, passionate group of creative people and have FUN!
