News & Music Business Network Updates
We have been re-developing our website this year in order to improve member experiences and further assist you all in furthering your careers. Due to site personnel changes, there have been a variety of delays with the relaunch. Per our new developers, the new site should fully launch in mid-late July 2014. Our new site will feature a plethora of new content, enable members to connect with one another in a simpler manner, and offer many many more services and opportunities! If there are any specific kinds of content that you’d like to see on the new site send us an email as we are open to suggestions (because we’re here to serve your needs).
Once the new site launches our LinkedIn group will still exist but will no longer be the primary source of The Music Business Network or its members’ activity. A $99 annual membership fee will also be imposed for both students and musicians upon the relaunch. Industry professionals and companies will not be charged but will continue to be screened for membership. All current student and musician members will be grandfathered in and will not be charged the new membership fee for their first year.
Thank You For Your Patience While We Undergo These Changes!
