The Membership and Programs Committee (MPC) continues to learn about the types of programs and projects our members enjoy.
This meeting the committee focus on membership recruitment, and input from current members on possible avenues to increase membership.
During the first half of 2023, we presented Grainger's choral works, with two programs (an introduction, then a program on performance).
The MPC will also receive updates on several current membership projects: Dana Paul Perna’s oral histories of founding and longtime Percy Grainger Society members; and Jennifer Martin’s compilation of the location of Grainger documents throughout the world. We are exploring collaborations with other organizations.
The agenda is here.
The minutes (after action report) from the June 9 meeting are here.
MPC Chair Bill Garlette will continue discussion, begun last meeting, of potential projects that explore Percy Grainger’s life, music, and connections to those who have significantly contributed to the advancement of Grainger's legacy.
Discussion on further projects might include:
* Position Papers
* Research Progress
* Research Resources
* Discussion Board
* Member Spotlight
* Partnerships with other Associations and Societies
Please register to join the discussion on Saturday September 9, 2023 at 11 am EDT via zoom. As always, the MPC Chair is happy to discuss any aspect of the Membership and Programs Committee before or after the meeting. Email Bill Garlette (email@example.com).
