Indie Music Publishing Summit


Please join us for the first ever AIMP Indie Music Publishing Summit during New York Music Week.  Our half-day conference brings together all three chapters of the AIMP – Los Angeles, New York, and Nashville – kicking off a week of events celebrating songwriters and the music publishing industry, including the NMPA Annual Meeting on June 14th, and culminating in the Songwriters Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on June 15th.

“The indie songwriter and independent music publisher are at a crossroads in the music industry.  The time is right for us to join together to discuss mutually beneficial strategies in navigating the new landscape.  We’re looking forward to addressing a number of timely topics, including the question of how ‘independents’ can benefit in this new era” said Alisa Coleman, Executive Director for the AIMP New York Chapter, and COO of ABKCO Music Inc.

AIMP President Michael Eames adds, “This Summit is an important opportunity during a high profile week in the music publishing industry to shine the spotlight on the crucial role that independent publishers play in the marketplace.  This is the first time the AIMP’s three Chapters are presenting a joint event with a national focus and it is a special moment in the organization’s now 40 year history.”

The Summit will kick off with a lunch featuring a comprehensive overview of the independent music publishing scene from the heads of the three AIMP Chapters – New York’s Coleman, Los Angeles’ Eames of PEN Music Group, and Nashville’s John Ozier of ole.  This will be followed by a panel discussion
