We encourage all industry professionals from singers, songwriters, musicians, producers and engineers from publicists, business managers, entertainment attorneys, promoters and venue managers, music educators and students to be a part of our collective voice.
We’d like to amplify the sound of Georgia’s music industry by coming together to discuss how we can work with Legislators to grow the music industry in Georgia.
Georgia Music Day is an opportunity for our members to visit with their legislators. As one of their constituents, you can speak to them on the impact of the music community on their district. Tell them about you, your business and the importance of growing music in Georgia.
If you have questions or want more info, we will have informational conference calls next week. Monday, February 29th at 10:30 am and Tuesday, March 1st and 9am and 2pm. Space is limited. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
