NETMCDO — CELEBRATING 23 YEARS
You are welcome to join us for NETMCDO 2018 Conference in Los Angeles: May 22–23, 2018
The NETMCDO Ground Crew is pleased to announce the theme for the 2018 conference:
This year we’re focusing on perspective: on tools to help us zero in on what matters most. It's both a focus on managing nuts-and-bolts skills and seeing these in the larger context of our changing institutions and industry. We’ll use "systems thinking" to help us better understand the mindsets of students, colleagues, collaborators, administrators, and employers.
Join us in sunny Los Angeles at the Colburn School for two days of workshops, discussions, and networking. Come identify the leverage points you can use to support career development and entrepreneurship in music back at your home context. Game on!
Location: The Colburn School in Downtown Los Angeles
Dates: May 22–23, 2018

NETMCDO is the only annual conference specifically dedicated to developing and strengthening career and entrepreneurship programs for musicians! Devote two days to music career issues and leave energized and motivated to better assist your students and alumni.
The conference is an opportunity to exchange ideas and information on best practices in musicians' professional development. We’ve kept the cost to a minimum and the networking, information-sharing, and peer-learning at a maximum.
Our conference is created and run by the group it serves. It is put on by and for career development professionals.
We generally have 40 – 45 music schools and organizations represented at the conference, from universities and colleges, to training orchestras and conservatories. We’ve had a wide range of participants: career center professionals, faculty, support staff, and independent career counselors...
Some attendees are brand new to the career services field and some general university career services staff seek to enhance their offerings for music students. This variety makes for rich discussions and great information and idea sharing. So bring along a colleague from your institution to get even more out of the conference.
NETMCDO holistic view: We have grown to realize that teaching, performing, advising, and administering are all part of career development and entrepreneurship education -- so be prepared to be challenged on all fronts!
Here are a few reasons for you (and your institution) to attend the network conference:
Our registration fee includes costs for managing our meeting spaces, facilitator’s fee, continental breakfasts both days, lunch on day one, and a reception on the first night. Lunch on the 2nd day and your dinners are on your own. (Note that a portion of the conference fee goes toward the nominal, annual cost of this website.)
Many past participants have remarked that this is the most economical conference they have ever attended ... and the most fulfilling ... and enlightening! We plan to keep it that way.
