    Joe knows Nashville…

    Joe knows nashville

    In less than a month, hundreds of fraternal leaders will head to Nashville for the Alliance’s Annual Meeting. It’s shaping up to be one of the largest meetings in recent history. Representatives from nearly 50 of the Alliance’s 63 member societies have registered and the room block at the Omni Hotel is on the cusp of selling out. (But don’t worry, there are several hotels within walking distance that can accommodate our overflow easily!)

    In addition to the terrific lineup of keynote speakers and workshops, the Music City has an endless supply of attractions and activities for almost anyone. It’s one of my favorite places to visit, and here are a few of my absolute favorites. Enjoy and see you in Nashville in September!

    1) Nashville and music are an inseparable combination. Here are some serious venues for fans of country music…

    5) Hungry? Here are 18 essential Nashville restaurants to consider…

    7) Are you ready for some football? Stay an extra day and watch the opening game of the NFL season between the hometown Titans and the Minnesota Vikings? (Use the promo code: Alliance for a discount.)

    Got a local favorite that I missed? Post a comment or link here or send me an email so I can list it in next week’s post.

    This Year’s Community Service Project

    This year our partner is Music Health Alliance (MHA), mHAmusic’s resource for healthcare solutions and access. MHA is the first non-profit organization to merge Nashville’s two leading industries, Healthcare and Music. With MHA’s unique model of healthcare support, over 3 million dollars in healthcare resources was secured last year to improve the health of the makers of music. MHA was created by removing the profit motive from a traditionally profit driven model. This enables them to provide personalized solutions and a seamless flow through what is seen by many in our industry as a fragmented healthcare system.

    Representatives from MHA will be onsite at the Omni Hotel Nashville in the Alliance’s registration area to accept cash and checks made out to Music Healthcare Alliance. Please stop by their table and support this worthy cause. MHA also helped us secure some great local musicians for our receptions which will be a real treat.  Make sure to thank them by making a donation onsite!
