MIAnews – Communicating with the industry throughout COVID-19


We hope that you are finding our newsletter of use in these difficult times. We pride ourselves in generating content that gives you important business updates, and keeps you up to date with industry news and developments. Now more than ever, we’ll be working hard to support MI businesses in any way we can.

Tomorrow, we will be bringing you a HR and Employment Law webinar with all of the latest guidance and information. This will be in the form of a video that you can watch when you get a chance. Many thanks to all of you who submitted questions for the webinar.

You can find all of this and more on our dedicated COVID-19 page, which we are updating daily – www.mia.org.uk/covid-19

MIA members – remember, the MIA have introduced expanded support services for all of our members to support you in dealing with the crisis. Take a look here.

MIAnews reaches more people than any other circular in our industry. It’s a great opportunity for you to showcase your company and contribute editorial. We all need some creativity and inspiration to keep us going!

If there’s anything that you’d like to share with the MI industry during this difficult time, please get in contact. I’d love to shout about the great work that you do and the people that you work with, so please get in touch with me to discuss features at alice@mia.org.uk.

We all need some uplifting news, so let’s have some stories about how you are supporting your teams and the music-making community through these dark days?

We’ll also be bringing you some handy tips for home working, and ways to look after yourself physically and mentally without your usual team around you.

I hope that this is all useful. Please contact me anytime if there’s anything that we can help with.

Stay safe and well,

Alice – General Manager and MIAnews Editor – alice@mia.org.uk
