Jill Robinson, Chief Executive Officer of TRG Arts, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP).

APAP, based in Washington, D.C., is the national service, advocacy and membership organization dedicated to developing and supporting a robust, performing arts presenting field and the professionals who work within it. The APAP membership voted in new board members during the Annual Member Meeting held on January 13, immediately following the close of APAP’s 64th annual conference.

According to APAP, its new President and CEO Lisa Richards Toney commented, in part, at this year’s conference, “We've got work to do. But we have imagination to uncover and promises to uphold. We are just getting started. We are stronger together, and we are worth it.”

To fulfill the critical mission Lisa Richards Toney addressed, Jill brings more than three decades of enduring dedication and expertise in the arts and culture sector. Her counsel is sought out by arts and culture executives worldwide. With her leadership, TRG Arts has doubled in size, opened a location in the United Kingdom, and served more than 1,200 clients in the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K. and Europe. Under her guidance TRG Arts has developed the largest (and growing) global arts and cultural consumer dataset in the industry, the COVID-19 International Sector Benchmark.

“I’m honored to be selected and I look forward to serving with the other distinguished members of APAP’s Board to help revitalize the performing arts. “With the creativity, bold-thinking and decisiveness of this organization, the sector will come back stronger than ever.”
