Trustees of Dance/USA member organizations are invited to attend a special day designed for trustees and their colleagues from across the country. This one day will provide trustees with a range of vital information relevant to their work as stewards of dance organizations -- the state of the national dance field, the national funding climate, and board-related issues -- as well as offer the opportunity to talk with and learn from experienced professionals in the dance and arts fields.
The chance to investigate issues together in a private, intimate setting is one of the major benefits of attending Dance/USA’s Conference. The special Trustees’ Day is programmed to offer trustees the opportunity to meet, share experiences, and learn from their peers as well as recognized arts leaders.
