Gathering of Arts and Culture Professionals

Please join us for the Third Annual Gathering of Arts and Culture Professionals at the JCC Association which will take place following the closing of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters Conference in New York City, on Tuesday January 13th, 2014. This gathering is offered to you for no additional cost.Last year over 50 Arts and Culture Professionals gathered in our office for a day of focused resource sharing, with larger sessions and smaller break-out sessions, as well as plenty of time for networking & schmoozing. This year, we will gather together again to discuss topics that are important to you and your JCC and to hear about what’s happening in Arts & Culture at JCCs across the continent.This is both an opportunity for arts and culture/programming colleagues who are in NYC for Association of Performing Arts Presenters, and for those who might travel in for the day. I hope you will join us on January 13th for lunch and an afternoon of networking.

Looking forward to seeing many of you again, and to welcoming some of you for the first time.

WEBINAR: Using Data to Strengthen Your Camp

Please note: All events are on Eastern Standard Time.

Presented by Amy Sales, Associate Director, Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies, Brandeis University

Audience: Overnight Camp Professionals

Data tell an important and useful story but only if we learn how to find, read, and interpret it. The more ways we look at the data, the richer the story. Using summer 2013 as our dataset, we will look at overnight camp data from three perspectives: JCC camps patterns in comparison with the rest of the field, longitudinal reports tracking your own camp’s trends over time, and comparison reports with reports from peer camps. With each view, we will look at the story and implications for your camp. Together we will consider how to share data with your camp leadership and use it to inform the strategic direction of the camp.
