The Music Publishers Association launched a brand new initiative in early 2018 aimed at our MPA Publisher Members who are new to the industry or have worked in publishing for less than 10 years. Renamed the MPA Futures Group in late 2019 (formally known as the Young Music Publishers Association or the YMPA).
The MPA Futures Group was created so that the MPA could better connect with and engage more with our more junior 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 MPA Futures Group will provide job tips, advice, networking opportunities and support new music publishing recruits through this exciting chapter in their career. The MPA Futures Group was also created so that the MPA can learn from our junior members and find out how best we can adapt the way we work to support and guide the next generation.
If you’re interested in learning more and would like to stay up-to-date on all the MPA Futures Group news and events, then please join the MPA Futures Facebook group by clicking here or follow them on Instagram here.
There are various MPA Futures Group events throughout the year including socials, Evening Sessions and the Peer Mentoring Scheme. You can stay up to date with all events here.
The scheme will take the shape of 7 x2-hour sessions taking place fortnightly, with a group of up to 8-10 participants, the idea of peer mentoring being that the participants teach and learn from each other under the guidance of a “champion.” The champion for our initial trial will be our CEO, Paul Clements.
Each session will centre around a focus topic, led by a “specialist” executive brought in from the MPA membership. There will be a presentation or training followed by a group discussion around the topic, plus general problem/issue sharing.
Applications for Peer Mentoring are now closed. They will open again in mid-late 2020.
