I am proudest of organizing and hosting the International Forum of Artist Managers’ Associations. Organizations from the UK (BACA), Canada (CAAM), Asia (FACP), Japan and other independents were present. We undertook to discuss issues of common goals and cooperation as well as issues dividing us: language, customs, funding practices, lexicon of arts business terms, etc. It was held at the UN in December, 1994, I think. The most important benefits of NAPAMA membership are the collegiality and good business which results from this. I decided to be a leader because I was persuaded to and because I had been inspired by others who preceded me.
