Toronto's Chorus Management Institute - Choirs Ontario & Chorus America

I recommend this and have heard from Canadian choir managers of the high value the program offered.

If your board can afford it or someone has some air miles to donate to a primary administrator, I'd consider it strongly. Here is the nicely formatted web link:
