Please note that the MRAC physical office is CLOSED and that this activity is CANCELED. Do not come to the MRAC office.  Please see MRAC’s COVID-19 Plans page for full details and updated information about our plans. We hope to reschedule many of our Management Training events in the future.

When you understand and control your budgets, you have choices. When you have choices, you have freedom. When you have freedom, you have power. In this workshop, you and your colleagues will find your choices on the path to power as you build and format your annual operating budget and the project areas that comprise your organizational activities. Team registrations from the same organization are welcome, but not required.

Presented by Gary Peterson.
In addition to his work as managing director of Ananya Dance Theatre, Gary Peterson has served as dance student, consultant, and as executive director of James Sewell Ballet, Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre, Zenon Dance Company, and the Southern Theater. He has produced professional dance performances at more than 300 domestic and international venues, including seven New York City engagements, Bermuda, Iceland, and Ethiopia. Gary’s perspectives are informed by experiences in law office management, legislative lobbying, federal multidistrict litigation, political candidacy, public affairs radio broadcasting, newspaper publishing, and by public service on the Washington staff of Senator Hubert H. Humphrey. He holds a BA degree in psychology from the University of Minnesota.
