A PRO MEMBER receives the following services:
Legislative Support: Your membership aids NSAI in actively representing YOUR RIGHTS in Washington, D.C. Once you’ve penned that monster hit and get it cut, we lobby to make sure you are getting every penny your deserve!
Online Video Library: We provide you with hours of educational and inspirational content to teach you about the craft and business.
NSAI Exclusive Events: Our members receive substantial discounts on all of our events (i.e. Song Camp, Songposium, NSAI Song Contest Presented by CMT, Spring Training and Tin Pan South).
Member Hotspots: At the headquarters of NSAI, we have hotspots that songwriters flock to. Our member lounge offers a place for members to check their email, catch up on their social networking, print lyrics, burn cds and make telephone calls.
Voting Privileges: Pro Members receive ballots and have the right to cast a vote in NSAI Board of Directors elections, the NSAI "Ten Songs I Wish I'd Written" Awards, and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
This is a one-time payment LIFETIME Professional Membership.
The PRO membership is by application only. If you are a staff writer for a publishing company OR earn 51 percent of your annual income from songwriting (whether from advances, royalties or performances) or are generally regarded as a professional songwriter within the music industry, you may qualify for a PRO Membership.
