Management Consultants for the Arts provides a full range of services including executive search, long-range planning, organizational analysis, board assessments, retreat facilitation, and conference, workshop and seminar development and facilitation to cultural institutions nationwide including museums, science centers, historical societies, visual arts centers, children's museums and service organizations.

What sets MCA apart from other consultants? We are not simply in the business of doling out general management advice or of recruiting new leadership. We are in the business of understanding and serving the nation’s cultural community. This exclusive focus derives from the insight our staff has gained through many years of arts management experience – in organizations as diverse as museums, orchestras, public broadcasting stations, theatre and dance companies, and other performing and visual arts organizations in both the commercial and not-for-profit sectors.

We believe this first-hand experience gives us a deeper, more insightful view of the cultural community and a richer understanding of our clients’ dynamics. We bring this experience to bear on every project. These may include seeking new leadership through executive search, formulating a strategic plan or assessing the efficacy of your organization’s structure, leadership and management system. Each of our projects begins – and ends – with the client’s mission: defining it, supporting it, and validating that it is met.

Our role is to serve as your counsel

Our role is to serve as your counsel. We don’t make decisions for you. We raise questions, provoke different points of view, and present options you may have not considered. The end result is your mission has been furthered and your organization is stronger – in staffing, leadership, structure, strategic outlook, and in its inner workings and external relationships with constituent communities.
