When the Eastern Caribbean Collective Organisation for Music Rights Inc. (ECCO) holds its extraordinary general meeting on Saturday, October 14, 2023, at 10:00 a.m., its legislative agenda will be among the items attendees will discuss.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Martin James has called on all ECCO members to be present.
James disclosed that in addition to the organisation’s legislative agenda, Saturday’s meeting at the National Skills Development Centre (NSDC) conference room in Bisee, Castries, will receive the audited financials for 2022 for adoption.
The gathering will also identify auditors for the ensuing year and hear updates regarding ECCO’s registration process, headquarters building, and operations.
James encouraged music users to attend the extraordinary general meeting, reminding them that using music publicly requires a license.
“So we really want to encourage all music users, broadcasters alike – everyone, not only in Saint Lucia,” he stated.
In this regard, James explained that ECCO covers six territories.
He revealed that ECCO had distributed notices to its members about the organisation’s by-laws and a Zoom link to Saturday’s meeting.
The ECCO official declared that the creative industry is dynamic and ever-changing.
And he called on ECCO members to properly register their music.
