Inspiring, educating and nurturing those who minister through music and the arts

Our Next Saturday Sharing

Please note: This session will be held at 11 am ET / 8 am PT.

We've all heard about how churches need to be concerned with how they handle copyrighted material, but many questions still linger. Ethically, we need to recognize and appropriately compensate creators of the material we, music, literature. But how can we be sure that we are following the correct guidelines? Join us for a Saturday Sharing with Jim Boratko as we delve into the topic with Siobhán Maguire, the Assistant Manager for ONE LICENSE, a copyright licensing agency. For 25+ years, she served as Music Director for parishes in the Archdiocese of Chicago. She is a former Board member of the Chicago Chapter of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians and is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin (MM, BM). The live, interactive session will be held on Saturday, September 30, at 11:00 EDT via ZOOM, and will be available for review following our discussion.

Free to all!


Stay tuned! Information for our national conference will be forthcoming.
