Cultural Management Institute
This Canadian site is similar in nature but more extensive and detailed than the NEA site. The Cultural Management Institute, as the name implies, is intended as a life-long learning and career development site for professional cultural managers. Topics covered at the CMI include self-reliance, development, fundraising, labour relations, board development., business plans, volunteer management, heritage careers, arts careers, consultants, and the media. The most recent addition to the site (in September 2002) is a module on planning for cultural tourism, which walks cultural managers through how their organization can participate in cultural tourism and what significance a cultural tourism initiative may have for their programs, audiences and community. In addition to a formal course, users can browse the material for informal learning, to mine for information, or to help solve a specific problem. Like the NEA site, all of the CMI’s services and resources are free.
