From SAMI's President:
Hello Amazing Writing Friends,
I wanted to share a variety of very important information with you today pertaining to SAMI’s spring activities. Firstly, our SAMI meetings for March and April will be online. Our concern is not adding unnecessary risk of potential exposure to Coronavirus. Having our meetings online will allow us to continue to perfect this technology for future opportunities! Please tune in as, Mike Byers, will kick off the live broadcast as this month’s SAMI Featured Artist. We will have a link available on or before Tuesday, March 17th. We are not sure if we will have the song share capability this month but we are working on it and will have that soon.
The studio is proceeding in amazing fashion. The construction phase should be at 95% by next Thursday. As an organization, we have an unprecedented opportunity for the future pertaining to writing, recording and encouraging each other. Not to mention that we will have a beautiful room for all of us to meet in for years to come.
The Shirley Martin Scholarship for young songwriters is in full swing with the deadline for the event being April 15th, 2020. If you know someone between the ages of 14 and 19, please encourage them to enter. Go to www.samisong.comto enter. The exact date for the reception will be announced at a later date.
Friends, we are aligned to flourish on the other side of any challenge that we face. As songwriters we have an opportunity to encourage through our performances, stories and life experiences put to music. I encourage you to do so.
Blessings my friends,
