Review for Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

WALA can be helpful is you have the patience to wait for the turnaround time, sometimes over a month. It may be that they are understaffed and perhaps underfunded. The concept is a good one.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

THEY ORGANIZE GOOD PUBLIC SEMINARS

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

DIFFICULT TO REACH

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

OPERATE FOR 30 YEARS. THEY DO NOT NEED THAT MUCH MONEY.

Ways to make it better...

THEY HAD RESPONDED FASTER TO THE REQUEST, PERHAPS THEY NEED FULL-TIME STAFF

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

RE-ORIENTING ITS GOALS TO BETTER SERVICE INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENTS, THEY ARE STILL OPERATING AS THEY DID MANY YEARS AGO, FOR STARTERS A BETTER WEBSITE...

One thing I'd also say is that...

WALA AIMS TO FILL A VERY IMPORTANT GAP IN ASSISTANCE TO ARTISTS BUT NEEDS TO RE-STRUCTURE WITH MORE SPECIALIZED PERSONNEL, BETTER AND MORE SERVICES.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009
