Winter Meeting

Thanks to the 38 presenters who joined us in Goldsboro last week for the Winter Booking Meeting! It was a fun, productive gathering and it's exciting to hear about all of the amazing performances that will be coming to our state next season.

And a big thanks to Sherry, Stephanie, Mr. Weil, and the rest of the Paramount Theatre and City of Goldsboro staff who welcomed us with such warm hospitality. We'll think of you every time we crack open another jar of pickles!

What happens next?

Presenters: Whether you were or were not at the meeting, be sure to check the block booking spreadsheet for updates and new blocks. Hopefully you have the link saved by now, but if not, you can find it in the Member Area of the NCPC website (in the left-hand menu after you log in).

Artists and Agents: Presenter "blockheads" will be contacting you if there is enough interest to form a block. In the meantime, if you have updates on avails or fees to share, you can use the NCPC listserv to email presenter members; just send your message to ncpc@ncpresenters.org. As always, use your best judgment and email etiquette when utilizing this resource!
