Become A NABFEME Volunteer Today!
At NABFEME we value the input and involvement of our active members. Today, more than 10 years after the National Association of Black Female Executives in Music & Entertainment, Inc. was founded, our mission is more important than ever. As we prepare to be a stronger force in entertainment, technology and business … we are in need of volunteers to help us meet the many challenges of our mission. With the addition of a strong volunteer network, we will be better equipped to keep our fingers on the pulse of our industry, the marketplace and the needs of our membership. Below are areas where we need YOUR support as a NABFEME Volunteer:

NABFEME often receives requests for speakers; and while the NABFEME Speaker’s Bureau mirrors a traditional speaker’s bureau, we do take a different approach. The NABFEME Speaker’s Bureau is a partnership with our members that showcases the talents and vast number of roles women play in music, entertainment and the professional arena. The NABFEME Speaker’s Bureau is an excellent resource for speakers who are both proficient and knowledgable in a vast array of topics. Through public speaking the NABFEME Speaker’s Bureau educates while informing the entertainment industry and the general public about the work that women do.
