The Association of Performing Arts Service Organizations is an informal group of organizations from around the world that share a mission of providing services for arts organizations and artists. Since 1983, APASO has gathered annually to share best practices in marketing, providing community-wide ticketing and audience development programs, professional development, advocacy, and other support for arts organizations and artists.
Any nonprofit arts/cultural organization providing similar services to their constituents is welcome to join the network at anytime. APASO uses a Google Group listserv to communicate with colleagues from one city to another in between annual conferences. To join, click here and then click on “Apply for Membership.”
