New York, NY - August 20, 2018
Leading ticketing, fundraising, and marketing solution PatronManager, a Patron Technology product, will be welcoming over 250 arts and cultural professionals from all over the country in New York City for their sixth annual PatronManager Community Meeting. Exclusively for PatronManager users, the comprehensive three-day event will include a mix of keynotes and presentations by PatronManager clients and staff, hands-on tutorials, and peer-to-peer discussions and panels that will address current focuses for arts and cultural organizations.
Michelle Paul, PatronManager’s Managing Director, remarked, “Our annual user conference is my absolute favorite event of the year. Having the opportunity to connect and collaborate with colleagues and fellow arts administrators in person really helps us remember why we do what we do.” Paul continued, “This year we’ve got over 40 presentations led by staff and clients, and more than 30 hands-on training sessions as well, so I’m thrilled by everyone’s eagerness to share their knowledge and expertise.”
As part of the opening keynote, Patron Technology President Eugene Carr and guest Maureen Andersen, President & CEO of INTIX, will sit down together for a candid conversation called “Thriving in the Digital Age.” This discussion will dive into questions and ideas around how technology, paired with analytics and artificial intelligence, impact the arts and cultural world.
Other sessions will include topics like customizing your PatronManager account based on your organization’s unique operational needs (lead by staff of Chicago’s The Second City), and the three most important questions your organization should be asking. There will also be a dedicated full-day track for Executive Directors, lead by Management and Strategy Consultant Jeffrey Golde.
