Management Conference

Community Theatre Management Conference (CTMC)
June 16 - 18, 2019, prior to AACTFest 2019

Conference in sessionThe Community Theatre Management Conference (CTMC) is offered in tandem with (but separately from) AACTFest 2019, and is modeled after the renowned National Full Time Community Theatre Directors Conference (often called the "Madison Conference"), and is for anyone with responsibility for managing a community theatre.

This educational gathering brings together administrators from all levels of theatre--from the volunteer who "runs things around here" to the "just starting" part-time administrator to the full-time professional manager. Learning is through a series of intensive, topic specific, roundtable discussions with participants sharing experiences--both problems and solutions. Participants prioritize and suggest topics through a pre-conference questionnaire.

Participants prioritize and suggest topics through a pre-conference questionnaire. Topics discussed but are not limited to:
Sales & Marketing, Other Sources of Earned Income, Fundraising and Development, Event Planning, Volunteers, Board, Season & Play Selections (Winners and Losers), Classes -  Educational and Outreach, Programming, Box Office Operations
The final list of topics will be determined by the participants.

The National Community Theatre Management Conference will be held Sunday, June 16-Tuesday, June 18, just prior to AACTFest 2019 in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
