Process:

Training, outreach / relationship development, institutional partnering - working with constituents such as Overnight projects, visual aids, attend conference APAP, do regional shows (create regional audience), clean up material (contracts, web , promo, workshop info, etc.)

Train Megan:

include takeaway example, contact base example, cover letter example - hours per week

Assessment - next phase - how economy becomes sustainable - through percentages of performance fees going to pay for representation / management - (one year?)

 

move to percentage of booking away from hourly - two season phase?  year 1 / year 2 - move to operating support only or matching / in kind

 

Timeline:
