The National Executive Council (NEC) of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has announced new rates for renewal of membership.
A statement from the union, signed by the acting president, Bessa Simons, indicates that, in a recent NEC meeting, it was agreed that in view of the effect of COVID-19 pandemic on musicians, a relief package should be designed as one of the membership benefits; hence the reduction of the membership renewal fee to GH¢65.00.
The NEC also decided that new members will now pay GH¢75.00 to join the Union. The new rates are effective from Monday, September 14 to November 14, 2020. The decision by NEC is to encourage members to renew their membership despite the debilitating effects of the pandemic and also afford new members the opportunity to join MUSIGA in these trying times.
MUSIGA was formed in 1974. The Union operates in all regions of Ghana.
