Special Meeting Date! In support of our friends at OAPN and their 2022 Regional Booking Conference, the September Network Call will be on September 28.

All PA Presenters Members are invited to the Wednesday, September 28 Network Call starting at 11:00 AM EST. This month, we will break into larger groups for plentiful conversation about what you or your employer are doing for professional development, how you are making room for showcasing and/or networking opportunities, and reasons that make YOU want to stay or leave a role.

In the first round, we will talk about conferences, networking, and professional development.   

Have you historically attended conferences in the past, and do you expect to continue?  What conference offerings seem common between them all but you still don’t participate in or see a need to? If you don’t attend conferences, what do you do instead? How do you network? Do you feel you network more or less since the COVID-19 pandemic? Do you think Zoom is still effective for networking? What does your company offer for professional development? What professional development do you think would benefit arts industry colleagues the most?

In the second round, we will ask you to share your insight on tactics to recruit and keep good employees. Or, what makes you want to start looking for a new job, and where do you begin to do that?

How to attract and employ talent?  What tools are you using to seek applicants? Other than professional development, how are you making your employees happy amid long and late hours? What motivates you to start looking for a new job?  What services do you employ, and which do you avoid? What do you include in your resume, and what do you trim? How do you craft your cover letters, and how do you stand out from the crowd? What methods and tricks do you use when negotiating salary and benefits? Is your network important, or do you tend to tackle this alone? Do you apply for only jobs that match your experience and skills?

For both rounds, we will dedicate a breakout group for free discussion. If you’re not really interested in the chosen topic, then start your own conversation in the Free Discussion Breakout!
