Regional Meetings 2012 — 2013

Thanks to fund­ing from the Creator’s Assis­tance Pro­gramme (SOCAN Foun­da­tion), CNMN will be host­ing 7 region­al meet­ings in the 2012 – 2013 sea­son. The board is cur­rent­ly work­ing on meet­ing details and sched­ules, and we will announce the full sched­ule lat­er. Check back on our web site event page as we con­tin­ue to update and add to the information.

The goals of these meet­ings are:

  1. To give CNMN mem­bers access to some pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties that they might not have access to otherwise
  2. To give CNMN mem­bers a chance to con­nect and meet oth­er new music artists in their region
  3. To do some out­reach to find new mem­bers in a wide diver­si­ty of artis­tic practices

Each meet­ing will be orga­nized by the CNMN region­al board mem­ber, and we are try­ing to make each meet­ing very spe­cif­ic to your region. Cana­da is a big, com­plex coun­try, it is def­i­nite­ly not “one size fits all”. It is a high pri­or­i­ty to make sure that region­al con­cerns and region­al real­i­ties are a big part of these meet­ings. If you would like to help with your region­al meet­ing, or have an idea to present, con­tact your local CNMN board mem­ber. See the sched­ule page for con­tact details.

The region­al meet­ings in our first round in 2011 were very infor­mal­ly struc­tured dis­cus­sions, a great way for us to get things mov­ing. How­ev­er, these meet­ings will be some­what more focused on pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment and net­work­ing, try­ing to lead to some more con­crete, tan­gi­ble actions. What those actions are will vary from region to region, but if we work togeth­er as a com­mu­ni­ty, both region­al­ly and nation­al­ly, we can have a much greater impact.
