The Museum, Arts and Culture Access Consortium (MAC) is run by an Advisory Board, who take on leadership roles within MAC and receive a stipend for their time. All MAC members are also invited to join a committee in order to connect with other MAC members and contribute to MAC’s important work of creating a more equitable and accessible arts & culture world for disabled people. MAC deeply appreciates the time, energy, and commitment that Advisory Board and committee members give towards the organization; MAC could not exist without them!
Please see below for more information about how you can get involved on the Advisory Board or on a committee.
The Advisory Board is the organizing body of MAC. It is a group of disabled and nondisabled access workers, consultants, and lovers of arts and culture in New York City. Together with the paid staff and volunteer committee members, the Advisory Board oversees the programming and operations of the organization. Advisory Board members serve a maximum of two two-year terms, which ensures that new voices and perspectives are always being brought into MAC’s leadership.
MAC will be recruiting for new Advisory Board members in Fall 2024 – stay tuned!

Committee members can expect to spend about 1-2 hours per month volunteering for MAC, usually in the form of attending virtual meetings. If you are a MAC member interested in contributing your time to a committee, fill out our Committee Sign-Up Form.
