FREE Provider Directory Listing At Nonprofit Bids

In the wake of how successful candidate resume profiles are at Arts Admin Jobs, I decided to adopt the idea to This move will help expand the original scope of the site to encourage nonprofit arts and culture orgs to use the site not only for posting formal Request For Projects (RFP) but also short term and limited engagement jobs.

Having a list of providers will also make it easier for those organizations to reach out directly for contract work.

I was originally considering making provider listings something as a value add to paid provider accounts but I decided to spread some love in the form of offering it free of charge for one year to any provider who signs up for the official launch notice.

Providers already signed up can look for an invite in their in-box by the end of this week!

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.
