Susan Nelson will lead the League’s “Benefits of Multi-Year Forecasting” webinar on October 27.

As the benefits of government funding dissipate and the new realities of donor and audience behaviors emerge, it has become ever more important for orchestras to think about how they are forecasting over multiple years. On Friday, October 27 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern/Noon Pacific, the League of American Orchestras will present “Benefits of Multi-Year Forecasting,” a 60-minute webinar led by Susan Nelson that will provide a framework for forecasting sales and donations and aligning them with realistic expense changes. In the webinar, Nelson will also discuss whether obtaining “change capital” is appropriate to help an organization attain a stable business model. Nelson, executive vice president at TDC, is an expert in nonprofit finance and planning.

“Benefits of Multi-Year Forecasting” takes place on Thursday, October 27 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern/Noon Pacific.
