This is the one and only head’s up reminding organizations included in the Annual Orchestra Website Review that the official review period starts soon. Organizations can brush up on precise evaluation criteria with a subscription to Adaptistration Premium and even though the review order has yet to be determined, that doesn’t mean it is too late to be included. But in order to have your orchestra take part in the evaluations, you’ll need to meet a few simple criteria…
In order to determine if your orchestra qualifies to be included in the review, take a moment to answer four simple YES/NO questions (a list of organizations included in this year’s review is located at the end of the post):
- Organization: Is your ensemble organized as a full time a symphonic or chamber orchestra?
- Location: Is your organization located in the United States or Canada?
- Budget*: Is the amount in Part 1, Line 17 (Total Expenditures) from your 2007/08 IRS Form 990 $2.5 million or greater?
- Artistic Representation: Are your orchestra musicians represented by a collective bargaining agreement and a full member of a recognized** players conference?
If you answered NO to any of the above questions then your organization does not yet meet the minimum qualifications to be included in the Annual Orchestra Website Review. If you are unsure about how to answer any of the above questions or if you feel that your organization should be granted special dispensation, send me an email ASAP and we’ll see what can be done.
