We’ve Settled Into A Good Groove With Vax Policies

While new contributions continue to come in, the Performing Arts Org Vax Policy Database has leveled off to 231 entries. More than three-quarters of those include links to their respective online policy pages.

This is decidedly one of those projects I’m glad to have allocated the time and resources to create. Having said that, it wouldn’t have been possible without the assistance of Holly Mulcahy and Ceci Dadisman or the 178 organizations that took the time to submit their information. Thank you!

While we will continue to process entries and keep the database public for the foreseeable future, this will be the final update unless we see another spike in entries. To that end, please encourage your colleagues who aren’t on the list to take a moment a contribute their status and provide a link to their policies online.

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.
