You’re a new executive director, in your first couple of years on the job. Not only are you navigating your way as the new CEO, but you are asked to be proficient in virtually every area of management, from fundraising and finance to board governance and human resources –and everything in between. This seminar offers an executive-level overview of the fundamentals of orchestra management to give new executive directors the skills to be effective leaders. Participants will explore how orchestras are structured and how they function, as well as what is unique to their culture. You will also be introduced to a number of best practices for working with your board, staff, music director, musicians, donors and community stakeholders. Attendees will have the opportunity to share ideas and best practices; create practical take home action plans; and strengthen your collegial network.
