NAPAMA WebinaRS for members only

Starting Monday, March. March 30, 2020, NAPAMA has been offering webinars for our members with topics surrounding our shared issues and emotions regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Starting July 8, 2020, NAPAMA initiated our Weekly Wednesday Webinar. These will have a variety of topics including our response to COVID-19 and will continue to be available on our Members Only Facebook page as it develops. Emails are sent to all members with Zoom login information, which is also posted on the Members Only Facebook page.

These webinars are archived on our Webinar Library page, available to all members by logging in. They are also available on our Facebook Members Only Facebook page.

Members Only Area

The Member Area of our website, accessible with your user name and password, contains several useful items and information. Member Directory displays all members including their contact information, business function, website, email address and more. You can also renew your dues from this area, update any profile information through the Member Information Editor, including adding your picture and bio, and view your order history back through December 2019.

The Webinar Library contains all the webinars NAPAMA has conducted since spring 2020, and there is a quick link to a variety of downloads that are hosted on our website. You can also add a prospect if there is a colleague you wish us to contact about membership. Future members-only placeholders in development include the possibility of a jobs bank and members forum.

Mentoring and Peer Coaching

Cooperation within our competitiv industry, which we often refer to as "co-opetition," is the way that we all thrive. Within NAPAMA’s membership, we have a wealth of experience and skills. Through Mentoring and Peer Coaching, we are creating ways for our members to share their knowledge and develop their understanding further. More information and how members can request a coach is available now.

Conference Caravan

The Conference Caravan is the easiest, cheapest, hassle-free way to ship your booth materials between fall regional conferences (Arts Midwest, WAA, and PAE). Our partner freight forwarder takes on the cargo responsibility so you don’t have to. The low transport cost is inclusive of pick-up, palletizing, delivery to/from conferences, & storage in between. Established in the early 2010s, the Caravan is a streamlined means of helping our members, most of whom are small businesses, easily and cost effectively transport their booth materials to/from conferences.

Performing Arts Market Report

The NAPAMA 2016-2017 Study of the Touring Performing Arts is a market research project initiated by the volunteer NAPAMA Board of Directors. One of the key tenants of NAPAMA’s vision is to build and share knowledge, and through this research effort, NAPAMA is seeking to share information with the field. Information about trends in the field and touring artistic work specifically can help artists, agent/managers, and presenters with their short and long range planning, understand competition and benchmarks within their niche of the industry, and consider the value of investments like showcasing and conferencing.

The results of the 2016-2017 Study are available through the Study Report for free to NAPAMA members. Learn more about the survey and get your copy of the report here.
