|PRO House Concert Agreement|
Terms of the Agreement
Folk Alliance International is pleased to announce the first phase of our newest member service – The U.S. PRO House Concert Presenter Agreement. FAI has reached an agreement with ASCAP and BMI to ensure that Folk Alliance member House Concert Presenters are not subject to any PRO fees. There is NO additional fee or change in membership status to qualify for this member service, but you must be a current member to quality for this program.
To qualify for FAI House Concert member service, a House Concert presenter must:
By signing up for this program, you will assure that as long as you are presenting music in compliance with House Concert established rules; you will not be subject to PRO payments for your House Concerts. By displaying the official FAI House Concert logo, the PRO’s will know you are official. At that point, if they have questions, they will contact the FAI office.
House Concert Rules and Regulations:
The next phases of this agreement will deal with coffee shops and non profit presenters working in community buildings, schools, and churches. We are also working with the PRO’s in the way they deal with our festivals. As you are aware, this is a very large and complicated negotiation that will still take time to finalize all phases of this potential agreement. We will continue the discussion on these topics as we move through the process. Big thanks to Renee Bodie, BMI, ASCAP, and everyone that took part in the PRO committee and discussions.
