We keep members connected with the latest happenings, events, industry news, and opportunities through our email updates, website and Facebook page.
We know that bringing people together helps grow our community. We will provide our members with networking opportunities through AMAA events and ensuring Americana music has a strong presence in the broader Australian music industry. We will increase awareness of the AMAA outside of Australia, with a particular focus of partnership opportunities in the USA and the UK.
If you’re looking for a list of venues to help plan a tour, festival opportunities and applications, funding opportunities, radio and media support, studios with an ear for Americana; then the AMAA offers its members listings and databases to help you connect with all facets of our community, as well as state based committee members for advice and support.
Work continuously on marketing and promoting the excellence and opportunities our community offers, through events, website promotion and online playlists
We help to create official showcase opportunities to benefit artists and audiences, both locally and supporting Sounds Australia showcases during AmericanaFest in Nashville each September.

The committee is elected every year in December, and serves for a period of one year.
