Hello, Chicago. Hello, World….

Today is the day I have been looking forward to since we decided to launch this blog. Today is the day that some Conference delegates will begin arriving in Chicago for pre-Conference sessions. Today is ALSO the day that we present to you our amazing cast of “live-from-Chicago” Conference-Bloggers.

From Maine to Texas, from Vermont to California, from England to Indiana…these are the people who will be reporting back to the world about their thoughts and opinions and reactions, about who they are seeing and meeting, what they are learning and taking home with them… hopefully more than just the fancy hotel towels! Either way, the only place to find out what they’re doing is right here.

So now, without any further adieu, our friends and colleagues reporting from Conference:
Liz Burnham, Director of Sales and Marketing, South Bend Symphony Orchestra
John Thomas Dodson, Music Director, Adrian Symphony Orchestra
Alan Jordan, Executive Director, Vermont Symphony Orchestra
Liz Mahler, Orchestra Management Fellow, League of American Orchestras/Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Jason Nicholson, Director of Marketing, Austin Symphony Orchestra
Carolyn Nishon, Artistic Administrator/Orchestra Manager, Portland (ME) Symphony Orchestra
Mark Pemberton, Director, Association of British Orchestras
Rachel Rossos, Director of Development and Marketing, New Century Chamber Orchestra
Joey Young, League Conducting Fellow, Baltimore Symphony/Peabody Conservatory

We will also have two members of the League staff contributing:
James Barry, Program Coordinator, Leadership Training and Recruitment (NYC office)
Najean Lee, Government Affairs & Education Advocacy Manager (DC office)
