It’s an Election Year!
There will be many new legislators, and most importantly a new Governor when the 2017 Legislative session convenes in January. Help us reach our fundraising goals by renewing your membership or by becoming a new member of MOMMA.
IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT TO RENEW OR JOIN THIS YEAR!
MOMMA is the only Missouri production industry organization working at the state level to renew the Film Tax Incentive program. Currently, there are 38 states that offer incentive programs for film and television production. Without an incentive program, Missouri cannot compete to bring this type of business in our state.
There are 3 scripted TV Series with story lines set in Missouri that will go into production in 2016 or 2017. As of now, it’s very likely that Missouri will lose all of the first unit work on these series. This is production work that can return every year the series is renewed, and most series film at least ten episodes a season.
MOMMA will keep track of these series, and make sure our Senators and Representatives understand the economic loss when these projects film in other states.
MEMBERSHIP DRIVE & RENEWAL ALERT FOR MANY MEMBERS
We haven’t done an official membership update since Fall 2015, so many of you will see that it’s time to renew! Memberships are good for one year. Sending monthly email renewal notices to members is very time consuming. So, we are now listing your renewal date next to your name on the website member list. We will now send out quarterly reminders via the MOMMA Email Blast. Hopefully, this will be a “smarter” way of reminding members to renew.
Visit our membership directory page on the MOMMA website, and check out the renewal date next to your name or company. If you see RENEWAL DATE MARCH 2016, that means your yearly membership expired in March 2016, so it’s time to renew. Your new membership year will begin on your renewal date.
Yearly Membership Levels:
Major Motion Supporter – $500.00
Corporate & Organization – $150.00
Individual – 25.00
Student – 20.00
It’s easy to renew online – visit the MOMMA website main page (or the sidebar to the right of this post) and select the MEMBERSHIP PayPal button to pay online. Or, you can follow the directions for mailing in a check to the PO Box address.
