What We Plan To Do
CREATE INDUSTRY NETWORKING GROUPS
We have created a group in Houston, Texas and it boasts over 450 members and is growing. Our plan is to create these groups in all of the major cities so that we can bring the mentors and industry experts to the places where industry knowledge and up to date information is hard to find.
CREATE TEACHING EVENTS
We have already held over 30 panels in Houston on everything from social media to music business accounting. The results have been dramatic and visible.
CREATE EVENTS THAT GENERATE MONEY
We are all asked to donate our time, talent and money to many worthy causes so putting on a show is what we do best. By using donations of time and event space we put on events that generated revenue in order to keep our panels cheap or free. The biggest fundraiser in the future will be Springboard South, The Band Bootcamps and The Band Mall. We also do an annual holiday party where we auction off our talents and services with the revenue going directly into paying the costs of our educational panels and industry networking events.
CREATE EQUIPMENT BANKS
In the future we want to have equipment to loan, rent and give to musicians who need it. Loan for hardship cases where instruments have been stolen or are being repaired. Rented for recording sessions and given to students and musicians in need.
