To strengthen its services to members, the League of American Orchestras is moving its office this fall to 520 Eighth Avenue, between 36th and 37th streets in New York’s Garment District. The move will allow the League to benefit from a contemporary workspace that promotes collaboration among staff and improved outreach to members through up-to-date videoconferencing and digital learning capabilities. Additionally, with rents steadily increasing at the League’s current location at 33 W. 60th Street in the Columbus Circle neighborhood, the move will substantially reduce occupancy costs. The establishment of a new national headquarters is the cornerstone of a major $1.8 million investment in member service including a new website, digital learning capacity, and an information technology ecosystem. A major fundraising campaign is underway with $1 million committed to date. The campaign was launched with a lead gift of $400,000 from League Emeritus Director Bruce Clinton of The Clinton Family Fund. The League has a staff of 29, with two government relations personnel in Washington, D.C. It has been at its current location since 1999.
As the date of the move draws closer, the League will disseminate change-of-address notices. The phone number for the League, 212 262-5161, and email addresses will remain the same, including firstname.lastname@example.org.
