Fall Member Challenge-Utilize Those Networks!

Is there a non-profit arts organization in you network that you feel would be interested in/benefit from joining Michigan Presenters?
The board is challenging all member organizations to bring one non-member organization to the fall meeting! Even if your organization can't attend, you are still challenged to invite a colleague or partner organization to see what Michigan Presenters is all about this fall. Non-member organizations may attend one meeting before committing to an organizational membership. You can share this RSVP form with your invitees.

Submit the names of those you're inviting when you RSVP and a board member will follow up your invitation to the meeting with a second invitation. We have seen significant membership growth in 2017 and will only continue to grow in 2018 with your help.
See our current member list here.


Professional Development Session

Catching Dreams: Finding The Right Fit For Your Mitt
Jamie-Sue Seal, Smokin' Sleddog Records, Ohio Arts Professionals Network Board Member

Catching dreams requires clear vision, balance and stamina. Arts presenters must oftentimes tap into the most extreme ends of the spectrum, and simultaneously be risk takers and conservatives. So why leave all the creativity up to the artists and shows that are being presented at your venue? Is your space too big or too small? Is it time to play the game a little differently? What are AM Arts…3.14 dates…what are secret shows? Find out when you join us for an imaginative, interactive and conversational session. Bring your mitt…it’s time to catch some dreams.
Jamie-Sue Seal is the Founding Artist, Senior Agent and chief dreamer at Smokin’ Sleddog Records, an award winning record label and booking agency based in the big Mitt (Michigan). She has worked as a presenter of several music series throughout the state and is one half of the duo Bottle Rocket Cabaret with music partner John Latini. Jamie-Sue has proudly served as a board member and publicity coordinator of the folk music presenting organization The Ten Pound Fiddle since 2008, and on the board of the Ohio Arts Professionals Network (OAPN) since 2014. Her favorite things include dogs, winter and chocolate. She dotes on her Dalmatian, Levi, and sometimes on her husband.
