Music Biz Congratulates Members & Friends Featured In Billboard’s 2018 ‘Women In Music’

The Music Business Association (Music Biz) would like to congratulate its members, friends, and affiliates for being featured on Billboard’s ‘Women In Music 2018’ list. We’d like to send a special congratulations to the four Executives of the Year: Danielle Aguirre, Executive VP/General Counsel for the National Music Publishers Association; Dina LaPolt, Founder/Owner of LaPolt Law, and Legal Counsel to the Songwriters of North America; Jacqueline Charlesworth, Of Counsel, Covington & Burling; and Susan Genco, Co-President, Azoff MSG Entertainment.

All four women were instrumental in the writing and passage of the Music Modernization Act, the copyright legislation whose passage is set to completely revamp how royalties are collected and dispersed to artists in the age of music streaming.

We congratulate the entire list of ‘Women In Music 2018’ honorees, especially those who are members of the Music Biz community and, through their membership, have helped the Association become as vibrant as it is!
