The Making Music Council

Annual council meetings are one of the opportunities you have as a group, through your Making Music Group Representative (MM Group Rep) , to meet Making Music staff and Board members and discuss the future direction of your association.

Perhaps your group pays its annual membership fee and gets some useful info or services in return, but you have a feeling you could be getting more out of it, or you think that Making Music should be doing something about a particular issue. Or maybe you wonder what Making Music’s plans are for future services and campaigns?

Whatever your level of Making Music or music group experience, council meetings offer the chance to give your views to staff and Board members on specific challenges or future plans, and share challenges that might prevent your group being as successful as it could be.

All MM Group Reps have a place on the Making Music Council and are invited to council meetings. If your MM Group Reps can’t make it, you can nominate someone else to attend - just let us know.

This year, over the summer, we will be hosting the Council meetings online. At least one member of the Making Music staff and Board of Trustees will be present at all meetings. In the autumn, we will give feedback on how the meetings have informed our plans by sharing our report on the council meetings online.

Agenda for the 2020 meetings

  • A consultation session on our new website, which we will be developing in 2021
  • An update on our campaigning activity, particularly in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic
  • Bring your own topics for discussion – your time to raise anything not covered already
