It’s The Eleventh Hour For Responding To Net Neutrality

Adaptistration People 043Many thanks to Thomas Cott for reminding everyone via yesterday’s newsletter yesterday that Monday, 9/15/14 is the deadline for submitting your comments to the proposed changes that would gut Net Neutrality as we know it. If you’re just coming in on this issue, here’s what you need to know in a nutshell: it’s a terrible idea and you should do everything you can help make sure it doesn’t happen.

To that end, you can submit a comment via the FCC’s form or send an email to mailto:openinternet@fcc.gov.

If you want to know why it’s a terrible idea, we’ve got you covered via a series of posts that dive deep into the details and how it is especially bad for nonprofit performing arts organizations:

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
