We believe the strength of the music industry is rooted in the diversity and vitality of local music communities. Representing music markets across the country, The Recording Academy’s 12 regional Chapters work year-round building community through professional development programming, networking, advocacy, and philanthropy. Academy members are associated with the Chapter closest to their home city, and also have full access to the services and support of all 12 Chapters.
Chapter and National Leadership
Every Chapter has a board, which is elected by the members of that Chapter and who are entrusted to steer the Chapter's local programming. The Chapter board elects Trustees who are responsible for the financial health of The Recording Academy and who develop policy at the National level. We encourage members to get involved in their Chapter's leadership, serving on committees and taking a leadership role in the development of Academy initiatives.
