The MLC Seeking Suggestions for Music Publisher Representative to Serve on Operations Advisory Committee

The Mechanical Licensing Collective (The MLC) is now seeking suggestions for a music publisher representative to fill an open seat on its Operations Advisory Committee.  

As described in the MMA, the Operations Advisory Committee “makes recommendations to the Board concerning the operations of the Collective, including the efficient investment in and deployment of information technology and data resources.” 

Under the Music Modernization Act (MMA), certain governance positions at The MLC are reserved for representatives of music publishers. These positions include ten members of The MLC’s Board of Directors (“Music Publisher Directors”), six members of the Operations Advisory Committee, five members of the Dispute Resolution Committee and five members of the Unclaimed Royalties Oversight Committee. The seat on this committee currently open is a music publisher seat. Therefore, any prospective candidate for this vacancy must be a representative of a music publisher. 

MLC committees meet regularly, and all meetings allow for virtual participation such that travel is not generally required. Committee members are expected to devote sufficient time to prepare for and particulate fully in all meetings. For more information about becoming involved with The MLC, visit:

Suggestions should be made no later than May 8, 2021. To suggest a candidate for the music publisher representative to The MLC’s Operations Advisory Committee, please complete the suggestion form available here.
