The 2010 survey reports on operations data from the 2008-2009 season. An excellent benchmarking tool.
A speech by Russell Willis Taylor of National Arts Strategies that addresses ways to turn times of organizational and environmental crisis into growth and creative thinking opportunities. Delivered at the 2010 Conference.
All of us in the arts feel the pinch in a recession. Here is the story of how the Tucson Chamber Artists weathered the storm of economic bad news during one year, employing adaptive strategies throughout the season to overcome them.
Member choruses reported on the impact of the recession on their financial and organizational outlook in a brief survey conducted in 2009.
Guidelines on the financial reports you need from your accountant—and when—to be an effective steward of your chorus.
Providing financial oversight for your chorus is a critical role with many facets—learn about the challenges and rewards of effective stewardship.
As chorus leaders you make important decisions annually, monthly, even daily, that affect the future of your organization. In doing so, be sure to consider context, both internal and external, as you make your choices. What are other choruses doing? What are others in the broader nonprofit community doing? What have we ourselves been doing and how might we do it better? We discuss how others have used the Chorus America Chorus Operations Survey Report to inform their decisionmaking.
