Orchestra Leadership Academy Seminar:

Aligning Money & Organizational Strategy: Beyond Breakeven
Saturday, January 28th from 1:00 to 6:00pm and Sunday, January 29th from 8:00 am to 12:30pm

This seminar will unlock the mysteries of balance sheet analysis specifically for orchestras, highlighting the leading indicators of strength, weakness and risk, and how to connect money and strategy. You will learn how to look at your own orchestra’s financial position using this approach, to engage leadership teams and other stakeholders in a deeper conversation about your strategy and the ways in which your financial position informs your degree of risk. Is your organization well positioned to undertake a capital campaign? Begin a new initiative? Expand or manage contraction? Take risks in your programming? Find out how to name your pain and convert those vague anxieties into a real conversation that can become the basis of meaningful change.

This seminar is open to executive directors as well as other League constituents.

Faculty: Susan Nelson, principal, Technical Development Corporation; Allison M. Crump, senior associate, Technical Development Corporation
