Quote of the Day

"Those of us who have been in this field for decades are just as threatened this year as we were 10 years ago. Our organizations don't build large cushions since we don't earn large surpluses and we don't earn huge bonuses even if the work we produce is wonderful and our budgets are balanced. No wonder our board members do not appreciate our elevated stress levels at the start of a season. I have been told more times than I can count, 'Why are you scared? After all, you have been so successful for years.' And no wonder so many great arts executives leave the field prematurely."

-Michael Kaiser on one of the many differences between profit and non.
