Recap of AAO CEO Network Meeting, 4/24

CEO Network – April 24
Hosted by AAO Chair Lynn Osmond

Representatives from 23 organizations across the AAO Network convened a call to check-in on everyone’s progress in steering their respective organizations through the early days of the pandemic.

Meeting Overview
Lynn Osmond began the meeting by offering some high-level notes and updates on how the City of Chicago and the Chicago Architecture Center have been faring with the Shelter in Place order and what big picture thinking will guide the eventual steps to re-open the city for business. The group went on to discuss their biggest concerns as their organizations deal with the COVID-19 crisis (including scenario planning and fundraising during COVID-19); some big questions around online programming; and ways participants are planning for a new way of convening and presenting content going forward.
