  • For Executive Directors of Groups 2-5, on Building a Sustainable Business Model, facilitated by Jon Limbacher, vice president and COO, The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.

    Does your orchestra have a coherent and shared business model?

    Five years ago The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra asked two questions: What business are we in? How can we build a financially sustainable organization? The answer to those questions produced a cohesive philosophy about how mission, audience development and philanthropy can intersect to form a sustainable model.  Join the mentoring circle and discuss the process to building your own sustainable business model for your orchestra.

Deadline to register: April 5
