Don't Let Your Network Die: How to Plan & Manage the Basics of Your Emerging Arts Leader Network

A thriving network chapter needs a clear structure and strategy to ensure continuity and relevant programming. Often networks are started by a couple of energetic individuals doing it all but if they forego proper planning and recruitment they will ultimately face burnout and a dying network.

McNeil and Emerging Arts Leaders/Los Angeles Advisory Board member Lauren Nichols for a conversation on how to approach the planning process in order to create a strong framework and grow a successful and sustainable network. McNeil is the Founder & President of McNeil Creative Enterprises. She has experience consulting with Emerging Leader Networks, including Emerging Arts Leaders/Los Angeles, on strategic visioning and building a strong foundation.

Participants should expect insight on the following topics:

• What to Consider When Launching an Emerging Arts Leaders(EAL) Network
• How to Plan for EAL Network Success
• Common Issues/Challenges Faced by EAL Networks
• Techniques to Address Issues/Challenges

What do I do with the Money? A Financial Primer for Emerging Leader Networks, Art Collectives, and other Unincorporated Groups.

Whether it's event revenue, membership fees, or donations, running an unincorporated group requires you to track and manage money that isn't yours. What should you do with the money in order to keep in line with IRS rules and limit your liability? What are the rules for asking, accepting, and managing donations? What are your group's structural options?

Join financial expert Elaine Grogan Luttrull, Founder of Minerva Financial Arts and author of "Arts & Numbers: A Financial Guide for Artists, Writers, Non-Profits, and other Members of the Creative Class", and Bridget Woodbury, co-chair of Emerging Arts Leaders DC, in a conversation about financial best practices for unincorporated groups like EL Networks and Art Collectives.

In this Virtual Conversation you will learn:

  • Best practices for managing an unincorporated group's money.
  • How to limit your personal liability
  • Options for accepting & managing donations
  • Structural options for your group.
