Entertainment Industry Summit

Save the date for the 2013 Entertainment Industry Summit on Monday, May 20th, 2013 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Koret Auditorium, SF Main Library, 100 Larkin Street.

The Entertainment Commission, The Mayor, The Board of Supervisors, California State officials, along with SFPD Command staff and others in the City Family, will present a variety of topics important to nightlife operators and then use small breakout sessions to brainstorm on new issues and needs. The goal of the Summit is to communicate that nighttime businesses are a priority, and to generate concrete outcomes that can translate into appropriate legislation or policy statements from the Mayor and the City.

Come to meet, exchange ideas and explore opportunities for collaborations to foster vibrant and safe night life in San Francisco. The Summit is for owners and operators, promoters, security companies, artists and any one interested in the topic contact:

Nightlife Economic Impacts NOW Public.

We asked for it and here it is!  The long awaited report on nightlife and the economic impacts it brings to San Francisco is now a part of the public discourse thanks to today's rally and hearing held at City Hall.  A long awaited study requested by Supervisor Scott Weiner was released today and will be the subject of a series of blogs here on the CMAC site.

Today we will start with the actual report itself and a link to the NBC video and written story aired today.  Click here to view that story.

Here is what the report says:

Work with CMAC!

Are you interested in working closely with San Francisco’s industry representatives, venue operators, and promoters?

CMAC is looking for interns who want to help our organization advocate for the Other 9 to 5. We are looking for someone who is proficient in Joomla Website language, can take our basic website, and develop it into the nation's first online nightlife community website.
