By admin

Madison Songwriters Guild will hold its Annual Membership meeting on Sunday Nov.21st at Noodles & Co., 3600 University Avenue. There will be a “meet & greet” from 1-2 pm and the meeting will start at 2:00pm. We’ll be electing Board of Director members and officers and plotting the course for MSG for the coming year. With any luck the actual meeting will take less than an hour.

New members are encouraged to attend and there will be someone on hand to sign you up if you want to join. This is a great opportunity to find out what this group is all about and to meet some local songwriters, so come with your questions and suggestions and talk to members, both experienced and new.

Bring your instruments, we’ll be having a song-circle after the meeting!
