Schedule & Agenda

NETMCDO 2017 Conference Details (as of 4/12/2017):

The NETMCDO Ground Crew is pleased to announce the theme for the 2017 conference:
Makers of Meaning: Strategies for designing your life with music.   

Over the course of two days, we will bring in practitioners from multiple disciplines to share tools, topics, and strategies for infusing meaning into the work musicians do, and the work that career professionals do on their behalf.  We'll explore how we and the musicians we serve experience meaning and relevance in our work. Conference sessions will include insights on how musicians' work affects others and ways to assess the impact. 

In panel discussions, small breakout groups, and interactive exercises we will address the issues that matter most to YOU — so bring your ideas, questions, and concerns to share and explore.
