Finance

Phoenix | December 8-9, 2014

A keen understanding of your organization's financial drivers is critical to effective leadership – and one that cannot be delegated. You have to be able to identify and obtain the ideal mix of revenues, make decisions about how to use your scarce resources and tell your stakeholders how your organization creates value. This seminar will teach your team how to examine your business model so that you can make decisions that will strengthen your organization in any economic environment. Apply through October 31 »

Extending Your Reach

Boston | December 8-9, 2014

Cultural organizations aspire to make the world a better place through bold visions and meaningful initiatives. But in today's world, it can be hard to achieve real impact on your own. Partnerships are critical to winning broad public support, to reaching new audiences and donors, to doing more with every dollar and to bringing to life work that is as inspired as we dream it can be. Extending Your Reach helps you better understand how alliances can amplify your organizational strategy. After careful evaluation of your current relationships, your goals for the future and critical tactics for establishing alliances, you will leave this seminar prepared to lead a portfolio of strategic partners and engage in alliances that will help you achieve your vision. Apply through October 31 »

 

The Chief Executive Program

The Chief Executive Program is a two-year initiative designed to unleash the collective power of 100 of the top executive leaders in the cultural sector to address the intractable issues of competition, money and relevance. These leaders will re-imagine what cultural institutions will be and how they can contribute to civil society. Learn more »


Sundance Resort

Sundance | November 2-5, 2014

This Chief Executive Program community will start building their action plans for the future as a community of Fellows. At Sundance they will build on all the ideas they have explored, all the conversations with colleagues, all the progress they have made in their organizations and any collaborations with fellow executives. Leaders will come together to ask, “What is possible?” and generate ideas for moving forward against the challenges they now see as most pressing for the field.


The Chief Executive Program: Community and Culture

This 1-year program serves an international group of 50 outstanding CEOs whose organizations work closely with communities on creative placemaking initiatives. Throughout the program, NAS helps leaders work individually and in groups to broaden their thinking about their environments and how to lead change. We support their efforts to bring new ideas to their organizations and communities. By the end of the experience, participants will have the ideas, tools and connections to collectively strengthen the cultural sector. They will join their colleagues from the first and second cohorts of The Chief Executive Program as a network of leaders and organizations positioned to introduce field-level change. Learn more »


Value & Community

Vanderbilt Univeristy Owen Graduate School of Management | October 19-23, 2014

At Vanderbilt, participants in The Chief Executive Program: Community and Culture will dig into the connections between strategy, value and community. Leaders will come together to understand how organizations create value in the community and how organizations can optimize the value it delivers, understand critical frameworks of strategic analysis in order to align programs and services with organizational mission and learn processes for generating ideas and driving them forward.

 

Creative Community Fellows

The Creative Community Fellowship brings together a unique community of innovators committed to using arts and culture to design solutions for community problems. Led by experts and world-renowned thought leaders in social innovation, design thinking and creative placemaking fellows gain the tools, skills and networks to activate the ideas that will transform their communities.
