As stewards of the arts in Washington, DC, we take our roles and responsibilities very seriously. One of the most important duties we have is to operate transparently, in fulfilling our mission, thanks to our staff and Commissioners at the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
DCCAH Commissioners are volunteers who meet regularly and represent the various wards throughout the city. The agenda for each Commission meeting is normally available 7-10 days prior. Minutes are normally available 60 days later, after they are voted on and approved by the Commission at a subsequent meeting.
Commission meetings are open and members of the public are encouraged to attend the 30 minute public comment period during the start of each meeting. Up to 10 associations, individuals, or organizations may request a 3 minute slot to speak during this period, but must do so by emailing JR Russ, Grants and Legislative Affairs Assistant, no later than 24 hours before the meeting day and time. Slots are limited and are made available on a first come first served basis.
We are dedicated to serving the DC community and keeping you informed and engaged, as we cannot fulfill our mission without your input and support. We appreciate you taking the time to keep up with our efforts, and please do not hesitate to be in touch should you have any comments or questions, as you view the documents below.
