SOLID (Society of Leaders in Development) held its first general assembly meeting of the year featuring Sony Music Nashville CEO/President, Joe Galante. Galante supplied insightful advice on current issues, including the marketing of digital music, technology and how it affects the profit for the industry as well as what he believes will be future issues for the music industry.
“This was a great opportunity for SOLID members to get advice from one of the best leaders in the music industry,” said SOLID President Katie Pope. “Joe Galante is really a role model that members of SOLID should look up to.”
SOLID plans an array of activities throughout the coming year, including additional high profile speakers.
“Last year our committee raised the bar in educational opportunities available for SOLID members,” says Education Chair Heath Baumhor. “We look forward to continuing to secure top-notch speakers for our general assembly meetings as well as the (After)Work Shops.”
Started in 1997 by a small group of industry professionals, SOLID combines educational opportunities, hands-on training from diverse industry experts, music industry social networking and community service.
