This thesis explores the Business Volunteers for the Arts$\sp\circler$ and Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts via their Washington, D.C. affiliates and offers suggestions for their continued growth and success, which are based on the author's interpretation of data gathered through interviews with persons involved with the networks and organizational materials, pamphlets and books. Comparative analysis of these data concludes that both networks are tailored to the needs of their volunteers and constituency, however, the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts would benefit from the creation of a central clearinghouse for information and from a similar, if truncated, version of the Business Volunteers for the Arts$\sp\circler$ training program for volunteers. Likewise, a partnership between the networks would increase the visibility and services of underserved areas. In general, both networks succeed on the independence of flexibility to adapt the basic premise of the network to the situation at hand.
