Rozsa Admin Fundamentals Training Program

The Rozsa Admin Fundamentals Training (RAFT) program is for those who have been working or volunteering for an arts organization and are looking to build their knowledge, individual artists of all disciplines who want to learn about organizational structures, and board members at arts organizations seeking to deepen their governance knowledge.

  • Explain the real-life challenges and opportunities of being a not-for-profit arts organization.
  • Review a financial statement presented at a not-for-profit board.

  • Identify the main components that make up a strategic plan.
  • Discuss the importance of doing evaluations.
  • Construct a project plan based on answering the questions who, what, where, when, why, and how much.

RAFT is a 22-hour program that will be delivered online through Zoom, covering the basics of arts management theory and practices. 20 hours will be in real time (synchronous) and two hours will be asynchronous (self-directed homework/group work).
