Roll up your sleeves and get to work building the future of the music industry. Music Biz is organized around six key industry sectors that reflect the breadth and diversity of the music business today. The Workgroups within these Sectors are where communication, coordination, and cooperation happen, helping us all reap the rewards as we work together to drive the monetization of music forward.
Participation in Music Biz Workgroups is open to all members and affiliate partners. Whether you are a legacy member or new to the organization, browse the information below to learn more about each Workgroup.
This group works to advance the interests of all types of physical commerce (retail and wholesale) and foster initiatives designed to promote sales of all forms of physical product, regardless of where it is sold.

Current Workgroups include:
Artists and managers have long been involved in the Association as individual members or participants in programming at the annual convention. The need for more dialogue between the artist/management community and the commerce community is essential. Live performances are critical to the future health and development of the business. This Sector serves as a valuable forum for these segments of the business to learn from each other and highlight issues of mutual interest.
For the past five years, the Association has produced and hosted semi-annual Entertainment & Technology Law Conferences across the country. These events have brought together legal and business affairs professionals from our member companies and affiliated organizations with a wide array of experts in the field to address litigation and legislation on key issues of the day. This new Sector will enhance our established program by providing additional opportunities for networking and sharing information on a regular basis.
