Early Bird Intensive Education Sessions
Sunday, July 16, 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
This year, the League will offer two optional "Early Bird" education sessions prior to the official conference kickoff on Sunday evening.
These sessions will have limited capacity, so they are first come, first served and will require advanced registration. Sessions are only available to full conference registrants and are included in the full conference registration fee.
Option 1 | 2:00 PM - 5:00PM: Historic Theatre Renovation 101: A Framework for Planning Successful Projects
Thinking about acquiring, restoring, and revitalizing a historic theatre? Already have one and need some help? This early-bird, in-depth session – featuring a team of leading experts in theatre planning, design, operation and tax credit financing – presents an overview of a historic theatre renovation project. Designed for historic theatre owners, community leaders, board members, senior staff and others who are considering, beginning or participating in the renovation of a historic theatre, this in-depth session will help you develop a clear understanding of your role in the process. Groups who want to renovate a historic theatre are encouraged to attend as a team.
Presenters: To Be Announced
Option 2 | 2:00 PM - 5:00PM: Worst Case Scenario
Maybe it's a slip and fall or maybe it's a major weather event like a hurricane. Is your theatre prepared? What do you do now to prevent an accident or minimize the impact of a disaster? What do you do when it is actually occurring to ensure your patrons, artists, staff and volunteers are safe? And when it's time to recover, is that the time to ask if you are appropriately insured? It's the worst part of our jobs but preparing for the worst case scenario is probably the most important part or operating your historic theatre. What you do now could save not only your building, but it could save lives too.
Presenters: To Be Announced (You will be able to add this session after you register, once details are announced.)
