COMPASS is a group of Leadership Level Members with an interest in education, collecting and giving.
Offering a variety of exclusive programs and experiences, Compass provides educational insight into all aspects of CAM and its collection.
COMPASS includes at least three experiential events per season designed to be fun and engaging while encouraging the exchange of ideas and interests, connoisseurship and collecting.
Yearly dues ($1,000/person or $1,500/couple - $500/person if under Forty) gives members a voice in the permanent collection, with a seat at the Acquisitions dinner in February to cast votes on future acquisitions, meet upcoming artists during visits to their studios, and by being inspired by visiting private collectors - is uniquely part of the COMPASS experience.
