NETMCDO — CELEBRATING 27 YEARS!
Back to School, Zoom Gathering focused on
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
25th Annual Conference Celebration
June 2 & 3 from 1-4 pm (EST)
Staying Connected: a virtual gathering, via Zoom
On both days Zoom we opened at 12:45 pm for all attendees to have pre-conference conversations, catch-ups and networking. Starting at 1pm we got interactive larger sessions and breakout rooms for small group discussion. The emphasis was on CONNECTING, so attendees were strongly encouraged to attend the entirety of both days. However, to prevent Zoom fatigue, the average session was30-mins or shorter, with a range of screen-free breaks throughout.

The NETMCDO Ground Crew: Angela Beeching, John Blanchard, Casey Molino Dunn, Allegra Montanari, Jazmín Morales. John Steinmetz, and Nate Zeisler
To celebrate NETMCDO's 25th anniversary this year, registration was only $25; this fee helps with yearly web tools and other administrative expenses. If this registration fee is prohibitive for you, please reach out to email@example.com and a Ground Crew member will confidentially assist. As always, we are looking forward to having as many colleagues attend as is possible.
PRE-CONFERENCE EVENT: Friday, May 8, 2020

Best of all, we all had fun being together!
A Message from the NETMCDO Ground Crew (from March 20, 2020):
Given the COVID-19 situation and the uncertainty of the next several months, we unfortunately must announce that this year’s conference of the Network of Music Career Development Officers (NETMCDO) will not take place in NYC on June 2nd and 3rd.
We are very disappointed that we have to make this decision, especially as a number of plans were coming to fruition for our twenty-fifth anniversary; yet we feel this is the best decision when we are all facing so many unknowns.
In place of our usual gathering we are exploring options for a virtual conference, possibly for June 2nd and/or 3rd. We look forward to surveying Network members about their interest and what a virtual conference might entail.
In the meantime, if you are interested in helping collect and share updated resources relating to the challenges being faced by musicians during this crisis, please contact John Blanchard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to our next time together and wishing you the best,
Casey Molino Dunn
