Friday, June 6, 2014 11:15 am 12:30 pm

Volunteers, working in partnership with development staff, can make important contributions to your orchestra’s contributed revenue.

At this session we will explore ways to create and sustain productive partnerships. Whether in a large or small orchestra, healthy, professional relationships between these two groups can create a symbiotic relationship that is a win-win for all involved.

This session will include case studies presented by volunteer and development teams around successful partnership systems and projects, as well as time for Q&A and roundtable discussions to help you determine how you can apply these ideas and best practices to your own organization.
