NAPAMA Members Accepted to APAP Leadership Fellows Program

Several of our members ave been accepted into the Association of Performing Arts Presenters Leadership Fellows Program. The 2 year program has two aims, to grow and enhance the leadership skills of the 'mid-career' folk as well as create a wide impact on the performing arts field and add to the growing knowledge base of arts leadership in our contemporary world. Congrats to our leader David Wannen as well to Amy MillerSarah Watland McCarthy, and Dani Kefeckollett and all accepted into the program.

In partnership, APAP and the Arts Leadership Program at the University of Southern California (USC) developed the Leadership Fellows Program (LFP) to seek long term impact on individuals and the arts field. The program has a 20 month arc, launching with a five-day summer intensive at USC, followed by ongoing peer-based mentoring, annual gatherings at the APAP|NYC conference in New York City and continuous engagement in an online resource and discussion platform. Scott Stoner, vice president of programs and resources at APAP, and Ken Foster, director of the Arts Leadership Program at USC, are co-directors of the program in consultation with leadership experts for each cohort tasked at guiding the program and the individual participants.

More about the program and the full list of both cohorts is available on the APAP website. Congrats!!
