What's the Next Step?

Collaboration…yep we do that all the time. It’s funny, as I think about it I think that being a member of the League forces you to collaborate. Like it or not we make you collaborate on things like SHOWGO! What’s that? Well, you are all listed on a bingo like card that people are downloading or picking up at Hot Tix and they have to go to at least four theatres and then they bring their proof of purchase to Hot Tix and they get a $50 gift certificate to a Lettuce Entertain You Restaurant. Cool right – the idea is that they will take a chance on a theatre they’ve never been to before to get that fourth ticket and WIN! That’s a plug for SHOWGO! but seriously we do all kinds of other collaborations all the time. And I’ve heard some good ideas lately for others.

So what’s the next step in collaboration or resource sharing or whatever you want to call it? Where can we go that we haven’t been before? Can you think of a collaboration or a way to share resources that would help you better fulfill your mission or help you to get to the place your company wants to be financially? Can you think of a collaboration that would save us all a lot of money?

Let’s hear it. See below for a forum we are having but also feel free to comment, email or call.


Collaboration and resource sharing have been topics of great interest in many circles lately. Please join us for an informal forum on Monday, March 7 from 6 - 7:30 p.m., at the League offices, 228 S. Wabash, Suite 200 to talk about these issues - what would you like to collaborate on, what could you or would you share? What does your ideal collaboration look like? What are the areas most ripe for collaboration? RSVP to to attend.
