This looks interesting: A new network for young music professionals in Canada

An interesting press release appeared in my inbox yesterday (June 24). It came from a new networking organization called Young Music Professionals (YMP), which describes itself as “a new network dedicated to music business workers aged 35 and under.”

It’s a not-for-profit that aims to create “a new network dedicated to music business workers aged 35 and under.”

The requirements for membership are simple. You need to be 35 or under, a Canadian citizen or permanent resident (new immigrants and refugees welcome) and are paid professional in the Canadian music industry. Membership is free.

Community partners include ADVANCE, Canada’s Black Music Business Collective, Indigenous Music Office, and Women in Music Canada.

If you’re interested, contact Maddy Oliver, the founder of YMP. She can be reached at [email protected]
