ADVOCACY COMMITTEE

Andrew Huppert, Chair

The Advocacy Committee deepens the connection to our mission in advocating for artists across MT. This includes engaging with the music community to assess its needs and concerns. From there this committee discusses and analyzes how these needs and concerns are in alignment with MAMA’s mission and if it can aid in creating meaningful, sustainable change.

The  Board Development Committee is responsible for ensuring that the nomination process and composition of the MAMA board complies with the bylaws of the Montana Area Music Association. The Committee will evaluate current and prospective directors against the criteria defined in the MAMA Board Member Position Description.
