June 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 200

The National Association of Mobile Entertainers ( N.A.M.E) provides everything from DJ Education, DJ Insurance to DJ Certification. Other benefits of membership include the ability to save money on equipment and music, business services, access to national and regional conferences and meetings, marketing materials, new sales tools, web listings and promotion, nationwide networking, and important relevant industry news and programs!

NAME seeks to do for DJs what other industry organizations aim to do for workers in their respective industries, which as its website states, is "to develop strategic relationships that aid not only the industry but also each respective member... ".

Membership ranges from $75 for an Associate membership (Individuals) to $125 for a Company Membership (Independents or small multi-operators) and $200 for a Corporate Membership (Larger operators or multifaceted companies or corporations).

The description I have provided here is just a brief introduction to N.A.M.E. There is a lot more info on there website, which I link to below. So have a look what I consider to be a very interesting and useful resource for all working DJs

Like N.A.M.E. above, the American DJ Association (ADJA), aims to aid the success of its members through unity, education, information and building relationships. In addition it seek to impress upon its members the importance of ethical and responsible behavior and to educate the general on finding and choosing a professional DJ.

ADJA also provides its members with saving on equipment and music, business and financial services, and access to insurance and advertising materials, to name a few. Add to that, discounts on rental cars, legal and accounting advice, a bi-monthly newsletter and a subscription to Mobile Beat DJ Magazine, which is dedicated to "the interest of working mobile entertainers".

Of particular interest is its "DJ IN NEED Program", which according to the ADJA website will allow a DJ who has lost his equipment due natural disasters such as, fire flood or earthquake, to receive a full replacement set up free of charge.

Membership is open to both National and local chapters and fees are is listed as:

$200 for a 1yr Full National Only Memberships [Individual All benefits including insurance discount]

$300 for a 1yr Natl. & Local Chapter Membership:

$525 for a 3yr Full National Only Memberships [Individual All benefits including insurance discount ]

$825 for a 3yr National & Local Chapter Membership

$150/yr for a Local Associate (Must be partner, spouse or employee of a full member)

$100/yr for a National only Associate (Must be partner, spouse or employee of a full member)

For more comprehensive info regarding ADJA feel free to visit their website, which I link to below. There you can decide for yourself whether or not the benefits of membership outweighs its cost. Certainly, this is worth consideration for any DJ who has invested time and money into their business and image and who is looking for the resource to take things to another level.
