The Music Publishers Association is proud to announce our brand new initiative aimed at our younger members – the Young Music Publishers Association or the YMPA.
The YMPA was created so that the MPA could better connect with and engage more with our younger members. We know that music publishing can be a tricky business to get into, and our role as a trade association is not only to represent music publishers but to nurture and teach the next generation of music publishers to ensure the continued success and diversity of our dynamic business. We understand the vital role that our younger members play in the future of music publishing and the wider music industry, so want to make sure that it is in good hands.
The YMPA will join and widen the music publishing community and will provide our younger member with job tips, advice, networking opportunities & support them through this exciting chapter in their career. The YMPA was also created so that the MPA can learn from our younger members and find out how best we can adapt the way we work to support and guide the next generation.
To kick things off we recently ran our first ever the YMPA Social which was a huge success, it included a speed networking session which saw our younger members discuss with each other their thoughts on the industry, their interests and challenges. Following this the group had pizza and drinks and filled large sheets of paper with current issues affecting their role and the music publishing business as a whole, these issues included social, education, training, regional impact and campaigning.
Following the YMPA social, we shared the notes with the YMPA Facebook group and went about setting up a YMPA committee, which was a popular suggestion at the social. The first committee will take place on Wednesday 18th July.
If you’re interested in learning more and would like to stay up-to-date on all the YMPA news and events, then please join the YMPA Facebook group by clicking here. The YMPA Facebook Group is a space for our younger members to share their ideas, current networking opportunities, job advice and much more.
