Conference Planning

In 2008, I organized and administered 4 two-day seminars for the MIENC at the Music Center of Los Angeles in LA, University of Minnesota School of Music in Minneapolis, Arts Education in Maryland Schools (AEMS) in Baltimore, and New England Conservatory, Boston. Themes focused on music and child development, music literacy and general symbolic development, music plus music integration program development, and music learning leadership as a strategy for sustaining music education in public schools. I also organized week-long national conferences held at New England Conservatory (2006), University of Minnesota (2007) and University of Maryland (2008). I negotiate contracts for lodging, catering, facility use, technology support, and transportation; supervise and manage all vendors, organize all logistics, and supervise temp conference staffers.
