…or maybe there is someone you think is.
Arts Presenters is soliciting applications for participants at the next Emerging Leader Institute being held at conference January 2008.
Deadline is next Monday though. I am sorry I didn’t see the announcement on the website sooner. The application may be found here and the guidelines here. There are some nice benefits like free APAP membership for a year and free conference admission if you are a first time attendee. You do have to be affiliated with a member entity- presenter, artist, agency, etc.
In fact, I had a conference call today with some other alumni of the program to discuss steps we would like to take to improve the experience for both new attendees and alumni both at the conference and after they return home. This is an effort that had its impetus with the alumni of the program who wish to have the emerging issues facing arts leaders addressed and planned for. And to develop a network of support.
Frankly, if I have my druthers, I’d want whatever network of support is developed opened to all arts people be they members of the organization or not.
But that could be many years down the road. In the meantime, if you are interested in the program, apply!
