Who We Are

The National Association of Record Industry Professional (NARIP.com) is the biggest music business network in the world, now reaching over 130,000+ around the world. Formed in 1998, NARIP brings together the brightest minds and leading innovators in the global record and music industries.

NARIP promoted the cultural and economic benefits of music and copyright in the US and abroad, and provides a platform to convey insights and perspectives to improve our business.

NARIP’s Mission

Our mission is to create access for YOU to the top executives and experts in the music and record industries, many of whom are NARIP members and who have spoken at past NARIP events (see partial list below).

To access the top experts in the field NARIP organizes Music Supervisor Sessions (helping many members successfully market their music catalogs and almost 200 placements to date), A&R Pitch Sessions, private dinners, seminars, cocktail mixers and brunches.

NARIP membership gives you excellent return on investment, it pays to belong! Here are benefits you receive:

1. Access to a global network of professionals. NARIP maintains resource and contact lists for its members of top music attorneys, music supervisors, headhunters with a music industry specialization, music and record execs, independent distributors, digital distributors, gaming resources for music placement, and more.

2. Learn about key areas of the industry from top experts in their respective fields such as A&R, marketing, law, artist development, producing, distribution, publicity, international marketing, new media, music supervision, music publishing, artist management and many more.

3. Get clients for your business. In addition to networking opportunities, NARIP member profiles are published on our high-traffic site, a great market place for your services.

4. Pitch directly to world-class music supervisors and A&R executives (over 200 placements for NARIP members to date).

5. Get the benefit of 25+ years of understanding through NARIP’s knowledge database.

6. We get people jobs (seriously, as around, and click here for the latest).

7. Reduced cost for NARIP Career Strategy Sessions and consulting from industry experts who are NARIP members and/or part of NARIP’s professional referral network.

We invite your suggestions for specific executives you’d like to hear from (or general types) and programming to meet your needs. Please call or email us at 818-769-7007 or email info AT narip DOT com.

Partial list of speakers from past NARIP events

NARIP’s mission is to create access for you to the top experts in the field like these who have spoken at past NARIP events. Please note that titles reflect the executive’s position at the last time he or she

appeared (many have spoken on more than one occasion), and a number of execs have since moved up or out. Sadly, four of them have passed away: Chris Arnstein, Paul Atkinson, Ian Copeland, Jeffrey Jolsen-Coburn and Jon Bergen. May they rest in peace and be fondly remembered and deeply appreciated for all they have done for our industry.

You are kindly advised to consider packing a sack lunch before starting to read this long list
