This January, connect with fellow executives in New York City to share ideas and learn about what is happening in the field today.

Lincoln Center president and CEO Henry Timms, a leading global expert in building digital movements such as #GivingTuesday and co-author of the bestselling book New Power, will help us explore the open, participatory, and peer-driven “new power” of today’s interconnected world and how it affects what we do within the orchestral field.

Two Pre-Meeting Seminars, Creating a Culture of Innovation and Strategic Partnerships and Community Engagement, will be held Saturday, January 25 from 1:00pm-5:00pm and on Sunday, January 26 from 8:00am to noon, respectively.
