The MPA is the UK trade association for music publishers. We have around 200 members, covering every genre of music. From Adele to the Beatles and Skepta, our members represent the rights of a variety of songwriters & composers.
The Provisional Membership will accompany the MPA’s current Publisher, Corporate Associate and Student Membership categories. It aims to support emerging businesses that want to start a music publishing company.
The MPA recognise that starting a publishing company and developing it to the stage where it is fully operational can take some time, we hope that the Provisional membership will encourage the formation of new music publishing companies and contribute to a thriving musical landscape in the UK where music publishing generates over a quarter of the music industry’s £2.6 billion in export revenue, and contributes £505 million to the UK economy (taken from the 2017 UK Music Measuring Music Report).
Please note Provisional Members will not have the ability to sit on Boards and Committees or have a voting right in the AGM. Members will not be entitled to recieve a discount to the annual MPA Christmas Lunch.
The new membership will only be offered for a maximum of two twelve-month terms to run consecutively. The annual fee for Provisional Membership covered from one year period of joining and will be £60 + VAT.
