We are pleased to announce the launch of Music BC’s brand new, web-based, fully-automated membership database!
The new system features a host of user-oriented features such as self-managed profiles, a member directory, community calendar, forums, online submissions forms for things like E-News, events, and Member of the Week, as well as an updated Digital Resources Library.
As part of our new system all old Music BC membership numbers have been retired- you will be issued a brand-new 7 digit membership ID by our new system. This is the number you will use to apply for grants, showcase opportunities, Member of the Week and E-news submissions (all available online now!). If your membership has lapsed (more than 4 weeks since expiring) you will need to create a new profile with on membership.musicbc.org
