The Forum maintains a comprehensive member database that may be drawn upon by composers and performers wishing to establish collaborative relationships, and by presenters, community organizations, and private individuals interested in awarding commissions or mounting performances.
New Forum members are asked to fill out profiles, which are entered into the database. All members are invited to update their profiles at any time. Member listings include types of music composed, instruments played, and other relevant skills (e.g., arranger, copyist, teacher, administrator, consultant). Many members have also submitted additional biographical data and artist statements. The database may be sorted in a variety of ways, enabling it to serve the needs of different kinds of users.
Members and nonmembers are able to purchase mailing lists drawn from the database for a nominal fee (members: 10¢ per name and a $15 set-up/shipping charge; nonmembers: 20¢ per name and a $25 set-up/shipping charge). These lists can be printed on Avery 5160 labels or provided electronically (ASCII comma delimited).
Lists can comprise virtually any configuration of the database, including but not limited to geographical delimiters, members vs. nonmembers, composers, performers, and organizations. The Forum staff will be able to assist you in determining your needs.
Please note: Purchase of labels entitles the buyer to a one-time use only. innova® Recordings also maintains a database of radio stations and media critics, from which labels are available for purchase.
