Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

More Minnesotans, especially those in the Southwest Minnesota Region, will be able to participate in the arts.Following the conference, the attendees will be asked to fill out an evaluation form regarding its effectiveness for assisting the board in developing programming that will help more of the community to participate in the arts.

Measurable Outcome(s)

It was noted that the attendees not only were able to become knowledgeable about many programming options available for Memorial Auditorium, but also became more knowledgeable about funding resources to make this programming available so that more of the community can participate in the arts events there. Several shows that were learned about at the conference have now been booked for the 2015-2016 season. More funding resources have been applied for as a result of learning about options at the conference.
