The election of two open seats for the Executive Board will be on the agenda for that meeting. The positions of Vice President and Secretary-Treasurer will be open.
Those members wishing to nominate themselves or another member-in-good-standing may do so by submitting these names to the Secretary-Treasurer by mail or email, to be received no later than 5 pm EST on Nov. 12th. Nominations from the floor of the meeting are also accepted.
Local 1000 will be hosting a panel at 11:15 am on Saturday at NERFA entitled: “Navigating the Music Business Through Hard Times” to be hosted by Ken Whiteley, John O’Connor, Tret Fure and Spook Handy. Thanks to Debra Cowan for organizing this.
The Showcase Free Zone (SFZ) will be hosted during the Private Guerilla Showcase hours as well. Many times we hear that the SFZ is “the highlight of the conference” for participants. Tret Fure will organize this.
