Also, we are happy to announce the addition of Wayne Willingham as my fellow coordinator for the Fort Worth Chapter; in addition to being an excellent songwriter, singer, and guitarist, Wayne is much more "tech-savvy" than I am!

Fort Worth Chapter Meets via Zoom
Due to continuing issues with Covid-19, NSAI does not allow in-person meetings; therefore all Fort Worth Chapter monthly gatherings are held via Zoom. Meeting dates, times, and Zoom links are posted monthly on the Chapter page. Please contact John Terry via NSAI Message Service with any questions.
Chapter Meetings Suspended
With the Coronavirus, everything seems to be changing by the minute. We look here at NSAI to protect our members the best way that we can. As you probably know, as of last week, NSAI has postponed the Tin Pan South Festival and Songwriting Seminar; this afternoon, I received an email from Executive Director Bart Herbison. He has directed all chapter coordinators to cancel upcoming chapter meetings. They have also shut down the main office in Nashville. The staff is working to develop improved ways for online experiences for the members.
For Fort Worth, this means that at least our April 13th meeting is canceled, pending any new information. In addition, the April Chapter Challenge is being postponed until later in the year. Should anything change prior to our April meeting date, I will send out notifications. Thanks for your understanding and patience.
No December Meeting
NSAI-Fort Worth will NOT have a meeting in December; our next meeting will be Monday, January 13, 2020, 7 - 9 PM at Dickey's BBQ, 5530 S. Cooper St. in Arlington. Y'all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
No October Meeting
Due to schedule conflicts, our chapter meeting for October has been cancelled. We will meet again on Monday, November 11, 2019 at Dickey's.
However, the Dallas Chapter meeting should be of great interest to everyone, and I encourage you to attend!
Dallas NSAI will host two Austin music officials at its next meeting on October 28. Brendon Anthony, Director of the Texas Music Office, and Mitch Ballard, Senior Director, Austin with BMI, will discuss their roles and how they can help songwriters. The meeting takes place at 7pm on the 28th at Opening Bell Coffee, 1409 S. Lamar Dallas.
