Emerging Leader Survey

Posted by Stephanie Hanson, Nov 23, 2009 2 comments

The Emerging Leader Council and Americans for the Arts needs YOUR help!   As we celebrate the last few months of the Emerging Leader Network's 10th Anniversary, we are launching a survey to identify the current professional development needs and trends of emerging arts leaders. 

This survey has a few objectives:

  • To strengthen the connection between Americans for the Arts and the Emerging Leaders Council and Networks, as well as to connect with new emerging leaders
  • To help shape future emerging leader professional development offerings
  • To help form and prioritize Emerging Leaders Council goals
  • To provide insight to Americans for the Arts on how to better assist emerging leaders in their career development

Click Here to access the survey.

And use this link to share the survey with your community and colleagues:  http://research.zarca.com/k/SsVWVWsSRsPsPsP 

We hope to reach as many Emerging Leaders as possible, and we encourage you to invite others to participate. The survey should take you about 15 minutes of your time to complete. 

Individual survey responses will be anonymous, but combined results will be shared with the field. 

Email Stephanie Evans, Local Arts Agency Services Coordinator, at sevans@artsusa.org with any questions.

When is the next survey America 4 the Arts will conduct, in regarding to the following topics: social networking, career/job opportunities, and job training? I look forward to participate for these topics online.

Thank You

Hi Jocelyn,

Thank you for your comment and thoughts. To answer your question - the Emerging Leader Council currently does not have another survey for the field planned. We intend to use the results of this survey to identify the needs of the Emerging Leader field, and develop a work plan for us in helping to serve those needs.

It's difficult to predict the results of the survey before it has officially closed, but I would not be surprised if the results lead us to developing programs in part on social networking, career/job opportunities, and job training (as you mention above).

Please feel free to email me directly if you have any questions, and thank you for your interest in Americans for the Arts and the Emerging Leaders Network!
