Council News - November 2015

Dear Friends,

It’s nice to sit down and write this next newsletter reflecting on an incredibly busy couple of weeks that have been both productive and enjoyable.  I began a new job at BMI as an Associate Director of Licensing Customer Relations and am thankful for continued professional growth and opportunity to serve BMI’s songwriters, composers and publishers.  We had our third Metro Council meeting on Tuesday, November 3rd and it was also the National League of Cities conference that same week.  I’m looking forward to the Holiday Season approaching and hope everyone will have an opportunity to enjoy quality time with family and friends.

The National League of Cities held their annual Congress of Cities conference in Nashville during the first week of November and it was a great way to showcase our city’s success, thriving businesses, music and much more.  Attendees were Mayors and Council Members from all across the United States and was a great opportunity to share ideas and best practices.  I had the opportunity to bring Joey to the NLC Board of Director’s dinner where Emmylou Harris gave a wonderful performance after the dinner.  Joey got to meet her as well.  I love this picture of Joey with Emmylou taken backstage before the dinner and performance.
