Two New Seasons Have Been Added To The Orchestra 990 Downloads!

Over the weekend, two new seasons were added to the growing list of downloadable Orchestra 990s at the Adaptistration Store. The 2006/07 and 2005/06 seasons are now available for instant download, which brings the total number up to nine: every season from 2005/06 through 2014/15.

Adaptistration People 055A big thank you to everyone who has already purchased copies and keep in mind, the more you buy, the less it costs thanks to automatic quantity discounts:

  • purchase 2-5: five percent discount
  • purchase 6-10: 10 percent discount
  • purchase 11-15: 15 percent discount
  • purchase 20+: 20 percent discount

It’s worth mentioning that the 2005/06 and 2006/07 seasons had a lower budget threshold for being included in the reviews which means they have more 990s than some of the later seasons. You can see the full list for each season at their respective product pages.

Moving forward, we only have four more seasons remaining before the entire set of 990s dating back to the 2001/02 season are available!

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.
