Shawnee on Delaware, PA

Sunday, May 21-Tuesday, May 23

The 7th Annual NAPAMA Agents & Managers Retreat will be held at the historic Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort in Shawnee on Delaware, PA Sunday, May 21 through Tuesday, May 23, 2017.   The Agents & Managers Retreat is open to any agent, manager, self-managed artist or presenter who is interested in being part of the conversation. The Retreat provides small business owners who operate within the performing arts industry an opportunity to network, learn and share information and resources with other agents and managers. It is three days where agents and managers step away from their daily operations to focus on business planning, new technology and solutions for current issues.

Registration will open in January following APAP. More information will be announced at the APAP conference and online at www.napama.org.

Thank you for organizing such an excellent retreat.  Interesting, informative, and beneficial break with colleagues.        —Katherine Miller, Kamstar Artist Management

Many, many thanks for the wonderful retreat that you facilitated.  I loved it.  I am so grateful to have joined NAPAMA and made new friends in the industry.  I am amazed by the level of support.                                —Joanie Logue Mosby, Mosby Music Group

ABOUT THE SHAWNEE INN & GOLF RESORT

You only have to visit The Shawnee Inn once to be captivated by its majestic mountain scenery and historic charm. Just two miles from the Delaware Water Gap and I-80, this landmark resort sits at the rolling foothills of Pennsylvania’s magnificent Pocono Mountains – just 75 miles from New York City and 90 miles from Philadelphia.

Built in 1911, this stately and historic retreat has welcomed generations of outdoor enthusiasts.  Now, The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is poised to write a new chapter in its celebrated history, adding modern twists to the beloved pastimes and pursuits of its forefathers. Whether you’re sharpening your swing at the Tillinghast Golf Academy, enjoying a ShawneeCraft brew at our new Gem and Keystone Brewpub or sampling honey from our bee hives, you’ll understand why Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is Pennsylvania’s preferred Poconos getaway.

The Shawnee Inn has a very entertaining past. In 1943, musician Fred Waring acquired the Buckwood Inn and renamed it the Shawnee Inn and Country Club, a golf resort. To promote the Inn, Waring centered his musical activities at the Inn itself.  He created, rehearsed and broadcast his radio programs from the stage of Shawnee's Worthington Hall throughout the 1940s, organized the Fred Waring Choral Workshop at the Shawnee Playhouse and founded the music publishing company, Shawee Press.  www.shawneeinn.com
