Best Place to Work - NEA!

February 9, 2017

Funding or no funding for NEA? That is a question… 

The NEA is an organization which has been empowering the arts over time  for the last 60 years. In December 2016, The NEA was voted one of the  “Best Places to Work” in the Federal Government based on their value system which includes the following:

 

  • Respect - Be thoughtful and kind to others

  • Communication - Be open, transparent, and honest in our communications

  • Celebration - Be forthright in recognizing and honoring the best in each other

  • Collaborative Leadership - Be a team player, good listener, accountable, and accessible

  • National Legacy - Be proud stewards of our nation's creative legacy and a partner in its creative future

  • Create & Innovate - Be inspirational and resourceful, always thinking outside of the box

 

Let The United States of the Arts live long, and prosper. The NEA is a vital force to the art and culture of the country and should be continued to be funded by the Federal Government.
