About the Seminar
Arts Presenters provides a unique opportunity for members and their colleagues to work together to more effectively deal
with changes that have occurred and will continue to affect the presenting field. Learn more about how the presenting
environment has changed, why and how we must think differently, and how you can re-imagine yourself and your organization
now. The seminar is based upon the collected input of presenters from around the country and concepts for thinking
differently and how to make practical applications. The day will focus on actions and solutions for you to take away.
Steven A. Wolf, founding Principal of AMS Planning & Research Corp. and Audience Insight LLC, will facilitate the day.
Sandra Gibson, President and CEO of Association of Performing Arts Presenters, will also contribute to the dialogue.
Participants are requested to download, read and bring to the session a printed copy of
