CANADIAN PROFESSIONAL DISC JOCKEY ASSOCIATION
Inspiring all DJs through Education, Networking and Support
As a national association, one of the roles we fill for our industry is to speak up as a united voice for those we represent. Advocating for our members in times of great need is one such example of when our united voices became greater than the sum of their individual parts.
As we announced at our recent Annual General Meeting on May 3, 2020, the Canadian Professional Disc Jockey Association, on behalf of our membership, has written and sent a letter to the Canadian Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, asking for additional assistance for our industry.
In addition to the Prime Minister, we also sent copies of this letter to the Honourable Bill Morneau (Minister of Finance) and the Honourable Steven Guilbeault (Minister of Canadian Heritage, responsible for arts and entertainment).
Following is a copy of the letter we sent:
We urge all Canadian DJs to now do two things:
First, take the content of this letter and repurpose it so that you can send it to your local Member of Parliament (a downloadable sample has already been prepared for you here). The more ears our message lands on, the louder our request will be heard. Let us take action on this together.
Second, if you have not already taken advantage of our free 3-month membership in the association, sign up today. By joining, you help make our voice louder and louder. When government officials look into who we are, numbers matter. Let's show them how many DJs there are behind the message this letter contains.
In addition to our regular work of providing programming and support for Canadian DJs, we will continue to voice your concerns to the Federal government when times call for it. Your involvement in the association makes that possible.
Help us help you.
Use this letter to write to your PM and join the CPDJA to lend your voice to the greater good.
Be safe, be healthy, be well.
