NETMCDO — CELEBRATING 24 YEARS!
The Network of Music Career Development Officers (NETMCDO) was founded in 1995 by Angela Beeching of New England Conservatory and John Blanchard of Manhattan School of Music.
The original goal was simply to gather together colleagues at similar music schools throughout the U.S. to discuss issues and get to know each other. When we began to widen our circle and advertise our annual meetings in New York, we saw more and more interest from schools without career centers for musicians or course work on the business of music. We have grown into an inclusive organization where “veterans” and “novices” alike share viewpoints, experiences, and knowledge.
NETMCDO is now a thriving network with members across the world. The Network communicates via an active e-mail listserv with over 130 participants and an annual conference.
