Adaptistration People 052Well this came as a pleasant surprise while reviewing email subscription lists: Adaptistration’s Weekly Email Summary crossed the 4,500 mark this week. Since the beginning of 2019, the list has seen a higher than average rate of new subscribers and those new-to-files have remained consistently engaged since subscribing.

The weekly summary has been one of the longest running features at the site and while it grows consistently from year to year, the last six months of growth has been great.

In addition to a list of the week’s articles and excerpts, you’ll find a list of the latest job listings from Arts Admin Jobs. Here’s a preview of what they look like.

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.
