We’re recommending a couple of things for your reading pleasure this week:
1. Drew McManus of the US orchestra blog, Adaptistration, has recently completed reviewing a range of US and Canadian orchestra websites – and you can read the findings on 14 Canadian orchestras here.
You can also read overall comparisons between US and Canadian orchestra results, here.
2. Some of the ensuing discussion about the role that websites play in orchestras’ efforts to provide easy access to important information got us thinking about the legal and ethical implications of a transparency and accountability strategy. If you’re looking for a resource that will help you assess your current practices and build a plan to strengthen them – derived from Canadian sources and in both official languages – we strongly recommend that you take a look at Charity Central’s Road to Accountability site. You can find it here.
