Volunteers run the organization —board members, technical support, and members who coordinate education, communications, membership, programming, networking, and professional practices committees. These generous individuals work together to help FMVA partner with community, support the arts and artists, and provide a space for artists to have a collective voice. The FMVA Strategic Plan provides a path for a healthy and stable arts organization by cultivating the local artistic community and creating opportunities for exposure to the community through the expansion of its programs and events aimed at the ongoing engagement of the artists with the community.
