The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. The Director will create a survey, ushers will distribute and collect surveys during performances, and the Director will tabulate the results. They will also tabulate attendance numbers, perform exit interviews, track anecdotal feedback, and tabulate fundraising and advertising financial levels.
