I'M NOT A DIRECTOR. CAN I JOIN DIRECTORS GATHERING?
Yes, and you're not alone! In 2020 we created our Collaborator Membership tier, which is perfect for non-directors who want to participate more intimately in the director-centric programming of Directors Gathering. Collaborator members are typically artists, designers, technicians, stage managers, arts administrators and/or other folx who sponsor artists and arts organizations. Find out more about the perks you'll receive as a Collaborator member here.
I’m not a member. Can I still attend (DG) events and programs?
HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR (DG) PROGRAMS AND EVENTS?
Look out for program announcements in the e-newsletter, visit our website and follow (DG) on social media to learn about current programs and opportunities!
(DG)’S PROGRAMS USED TO BE FREE. WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR A MEMBERSHIP NOW?
The success of (DG) is due in great part to your continued interest in the programming and events that the organization has been offering for years and we are deeply appreciative of the support. After 5 years, (DG) has designed a professional membership program. Our goal in this endeavor is to offer targeted programming for our members, at various stages in their careers and the development of their craft.
The membership "year" is only 9 months for 2022. Why isn't the fee prorated for a shorter membership year?
In 2022, (DG) is augmenting its offerings to directors at all career levels, all over the country. This year, (DG) will be producing its first annual Convening in the fall of 2022 (more details coming soon!). (DG) Members in 2022 will receive a deep discount for registration for the annual Convening, to account for the truncated membership year.
Will the (DG) membership only be good for 9 months going forward?
No. This year is an anomaly, in that the membership year begins on March 17 and is good until December 31. Beginning in 2023, the memberships to (DG) will commence on January 1 and will be good until December 31, and the renewal date will be January 1 beginning in 2023.
