Association of British Orchestras

Member Networking Events

Our 2023 Spring series of meetings are now open for bookings.

Presentations from previous events are available in our Events Archive, via the Members Area.

Member Networking Events are one of the ABO's key services that are most valued by members. Each group of managers meets up to twice a year to discuss topical issues and hear from relevant speakers. The ABO acts as the facilitator and relies on each group to set their own agenda. Members' staff are allocated to the relevant group's mailing list and receive information about forthcoming meetings and issues relevant to their group. Current specialist groups include Archivists, Chairs & Trustees, Chamber Orchestras, Communications, Concert & Orchestra, Digital, Education, Finance, Fundraising and Marketing. If you have any ideas or contributions for future meetings or if you are not on the mailing list for a member networking group and would like to be, please email
