The City of Victoria is seeking applicants to serve on the Victoria Music Friendly Advisory Board, a newly created board that will help the City identify ways to support the live music industry. 

The board will foster communication between music industry professionals and the City of Victoria by serving as a discussion forum and advising the Convention & Visitors Bureau about the live music industry in Victoria.

“This new avenue of communication will help us to identify issues, barriers and opportunities that we might not have been aware of previously,” said Convention and Visitors Bureau Director Joel Novosad. “Our live music industry is an important asset to our community, and we are excited to be able to partner with them more closely to understand their needs.”
