New Website to Launch Soon!
We posted a "sneak peek" of the new events page here on Facebook:
We are in the process of updating our website over the next few weeks. During this transition time members will not be able to log in to renew. If you received a renewal notice, you may send your check to our address at the college (listed under "Contact") OR wait to log into the brand new website. All user IDs and passwords will remain the same. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates, and continue to post your events there. (Click the Facebook link to the right.) Members will be notified when you are able to log in. We appreciate your patience.

Arts could use dedicated source of funding
The Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County has undergone several transitions.
In 2011, the Arts Council welcomed new members to the Board of Directors including a new board President. Within the past two years, our new leadership has been working on transitioning to a
more effective database. During this time we've realized that there has
been some decrease in communication with our valued members - both
directly and via our website. While we experienced a slow down in sending reminders for membership renewals, we've been working on getting things back on track.
We hope you will continue to support us and remain in touch. We want and need to hear from you! As a reminder, please consider renewing your ACCBC membership by following the instructions at the top of this page. For new members, click the Join button on the top left or mail a check with your Off-Line Registration form to the address below. Membership categories and rates are listed on the website. In addition, Like us on Facebook! Our Facebook page is the best way to stay current on what's new with us. We encourage you to friend us and remind your friends to do the same. You can also post your events here, as well as our online Calendar! We are looking forward to a productive and viable 2013, and seeing you among our supportive members.
As an artist or arts lover, we encourage you to join us in our mission.
