Are You Subscribed To Adaptistration’s Per Post Email Notices? If So, You May Need To Resubscribe

You know what they say about best-laid plans and even though Adaptistration has relied on WordPress to deliver its per-article email notifications for the last several years, some recent changes in how they manage that process makes it a less reliable option. More importantly, it seems that they’ve “temporarily” misplaced the blog’s existing subscription list. So while they are trying to find out what happened to it, anyone who was previously subscribed should take a quick moment to opt for the better-safe-than-sorry choice and resubscribe.

And no worries about any potential for duplicates. Once WordPress finds the original list and it gets uploaded to the new email marketing provider, MailChimp, that system will automatically merge and sync any records to prevent sending out multiple copies of the same message. Because who has time for that, right?

A thousand apologies for any inconvenience but thanks to everyone for taking a quick moment to send your email and confirm the opt-in email. If, for some reason, you subscribe and email notices don’t begin arriving by Thursday, send along a note with the email address you used and we can take a closer look for you.

Note: those of you signed up for the Weekly Email Summary are good to go and don’t need to do a thing. We’ve been using MailChimp for that service for years now and it is mutually exclusive to this migration.

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.
