Season's Greetings from NCPC

I don't know about you, but I do my best thinking in the shower each morning. Today, the first thought that came to mind was how grateful I am for each and every one of you. We've been through a lot this year and we have a ways to go, but as I pictured many of your faces, I reflected on how much love and kindness exists within the NCPC community and how we've lifted each other up over the past months.

I hope you have a chance to relax during this holiday season and do things that bring you joy. 2021 may not bring immediate change, but it brings a renewed sense of hope. We will continue this journey together and with the strength and support of our arts family, we will come out on the other side.

I wish you peace, health, and happiness in the coming year and will look forward to seeing you soon! Stay safe!

We are planning for our ArtsMarket conference next November 8-10. The NCPC Board and staff are hopeful that we can safely gather again and give our industry and businesses a boost. Keeping in mind the numerous challenges and stresses that the pandemic has created, we are evaluating every aspect of the conference to create a compelling and exciting, yet affordable, accessible, and comfortable experience for as many people as possible.

We would love to have your input as we move through the planning process and have created short presenter and exhibitor surveys to help us understand your point of view. We know it’s extremely hard to predict where we’ll all be by next November, so just answer the questions as best you can at this moment in time.

Please fill out only the survey that is applicable to your role by Friday, December 18th. Thank you for your valuable input!
