“I have been coming to Conference for more than a decade. I’d miss the rejuvenating quality of the interaction with my peers, but if I didn’t get a return I wouldn’t come back. Fortunately, I always do, and I don’t expect Dallas to be any different.” J. L. Nave, president and CEO, Fort Wayne Philharmonic Orchestra

Why do nearly a thousand board members, managers, musicians, and volunteers of America’s orchestras—from more than 200 orchestras and related organizations—make the annual pilgrimage to the League’s National Conference? Here are some reasons why:

  • Just being there—having the experience of interacting in person with colleagues is something you don’t get sitting in your office and watching Conference highlights on YouTube
  • A Key source of personal and professional renewal and the vitality of being around others who share my issues and challenges
  • Information exchange with friends and colleagues the spirit of rejuvenation
  • Collective brainstorming and problem-solving through regular interaction
  • Essential professional development for staff
  • Ideas for cost savings; face-to-face meetings; revenue-generation ideas; round tables and constituency meeting shaing
  • Quality time with my Chair/CEO
