This past week, I spent three days at Claremont Graduate University attending the annual meeting for the Association of Arts Administration Educators (AAAE). If you are not already familiar with AAAE, I recommend you visit their website at www.artsadministration.org.
One of the plenary sessions was with Executive Director for Grantmakers in the Arts Janet Brown. She discussed the role and importance of financial management and literacy.
As I teach the AADM financial management course, this struck a bit close to home. What she said indeed has merit and should be taken into consideration in both our studies and on the job.
This is an article she authored about her experience at the conference: www.giarts.org

About the New Orleans Antiques Forum
The New Orleans Antiques Forum is an annual program that encourages and showcases the scholarship of decorative arts history. The Historic New Orleans Collection established the event in 2008 to promote the Gulf Coast as a cultural destination and to generate economic support for local businesses. The event has proven to be a sold-out success since its first year, drawing participants from a dozen states or more.
With the theme “Circa 1812,” the 2012 New Orleans Antiques Forum recognizes the bicentennials of Louisiana statehood and the War of 1812. This year’s event includes speakers from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Hermitage: Home of Andrew Jackson, Skinner, Inc. and the Tulane University School of Architecture, among others. Featured topics include southern clocks, cabinetmaker Duncan Phyfe, and the White House in the early 19th century. For a full schedule, visit www.hnoc.org/antiques.htm or call (504) 523-4662.
