TCG Fall Forum on Governance

2015 TCG Fall Forum on Governance
New York City, NY
November 6-8, 2015

LISTEN AND INTERACT with the foremost experts in arts leadership.

DISCOVER AND SHARE fresh techniques and best practices for theatre governance.

CONNECT AND RE-CONNECT with industry colleagues from across the country.

The TCG Fall Forum on Governance provides a unique opportunity for theatre trustees and senior staff to engage with one another and to connect with peers from around the country in an intimate setting.  This annual event features dynamic speakers, from the field’s own stars to thought leaders from outside the field, and is designed to help participants discover and share innovative ideas.  The Forum is especially useful for trustees seeking to better understand their theatre’s relationship to the experiences of theatres nationwide.

Participation is open exclusively to TCG Member Theatre staff and trustees and is limited to 200 participants to ensure engaged discussion and quality participation. TCG sees the diversity of the field as one of its greatest assets and crafts all of our events to be useful for all Member Theatres, regardless of budget size, organizational structure, mission, audience demographics and geographic location.
