CONFERENCE THEME – 2020 Vision for Student Success!

As the field of arts administration continues to grow and evolve, what skills do students of arts management need to succeed on campus and once they join the workforce? How do we adequately prepare the next generation of arts managers for their professional work via pedagogical approaches and other forms of support?

Utilizing the cultural assets of New York City, and drawing from the significant population of arts management practitioners who dwell there, we hope to identify and explore the critical skills needed for success.

The Conference Planning Committee envisions three constituency groups of participants in the Conference: (1) Student/Alumni Engagement & Professional Development, (2) Practitioner and Professional Perspectives and (3) Research/Scholar & Academic Models.

Given the prime location in NYC, the Committee invites submissions that incorporate local practitioners as collaborators and/or co-presenters. AAAE will offer a special discounted day rate for NYC local participants who participate in this way.
