Virtual arts administrators make sense for cash strapped arts organizations. It frees them from the expense of setting up an office, so more of their funds can go to programming.
With all the technological advances we enjoy even attending meetings does not require a physical presence.
Qualified arts administrators are a specialized group of workers. Their training and experience is generally much broader than an office administrator.
