Broadway World: The City of Sacramento has selected Megan Van Voorhis as Cultural & Creative Economy Manager, following a national executive search process led by Arts Consulting Group (ACG). She will begin her tenure on September 21, 2020.
Ms. Van Voorhis is a mission-driven arts leader with nearly two decades of experience and a proven track record of success in strengthening arts and culture as a partner in community progress. Since 2003, she has held various leadership roles at Arts Cleveland (formerly Community Partnership for Arts and Culture), a nonprofit service organization dedicated to advancing arts and culture. In her most recent role as President and CEO, she oversaw public initiatives, led the board and staff through an organizational life cycle change, and oversaw the organization's visioning, strategic planning, and rebranding processes. Ms. Van Voorhis established Arts Cleveland as a central thought partner and credible resource in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District's arts education planning process. She also increased earned income through improved sponsorship strategies, speaking engagements, and the establishment of a new consulting practice and fiscal sponsorship program-resulting in a doubling of earned income since taking over the organization. Her other roles at Arts Cleveland included Chief Operating Officer, Vice President, Director of Research and Business Practices, and Assistant Director of Programs and Services.
