This summary of the principal deliberations and recommendations of the Wingspread II Conference convened in October 1978 by the American Theatre Association (ATA) documents the efforts of the ATA to develop the areas of standards and accreditation, development, education, and research. The work of the four commissions that had been created in each area of responsibility at the first Wingspread Conference in 1975 is clarified in this report, and plans are outlined to coordinate the activities of the commissions as service organizations for the field and to establish the role of the commissions in relation to the future of ATA as a professional arts organization. Also presented are recommendations to the Association of short-term and long-range goals for the next decade. The members present on each commission are listed, and the results of their considerations are outlined by commission heading. (AEA)
