A.R.T./New York members highly value the opportunity to meet with their colleagues in an informal and confidential setting. Our roundtables offer an opportunity for our members to ask each other's advice, share resources, and discuss challenges and achievements with peers who can relate. Some Roundtables are organized by budget tier and by the individual's role in the field. Others are organized by topic and are open to anyone regardless of tier or role. All roundtables are free of charge for members. 

Throughout the course of a year, we strive to offer roundtables for a variety of topics and departments but we are always happy to hear from our members if you have ideas about potential Roundtables! All suggestions should be sent to Senior Manager of Programs, David Shane at d[email protected]
