The Emerging Leaders Network believes one of the best things about the Guild is the sense of community it creates between people from across the country. While this is most apparent at the annual conference, the Emerging Leaders Network strives to build a similar type of support system virtually through regular “Coffee Chats”, bringing together arts administrators and artists who are looking to connect with others in the field. “Coffee Chats” are a loosely-facilitated open space to share challenges, successes, and advice, and create valuable connections with a group of people with so much in common.
Emerging Leaders Coffee Chats are a chance for you to step away from your daily to-do's and do something for your own personal and professional development. These chats will be facilitated using Zoom, so video technology is highly recommended, but accommodations can be made for phone participants as well. Coffee not required.
