Hello Shared Weight musicians,

I hope this email finds you well! I wanted to share the May issue of CDSS's Shop Talk as I know many of you are also organizers and even if you are not, you may be interested in some of the topics in this issue.   

In particular, I wanted to highlight a ***SURVEY FOR OPEN BAND LEADERS***
Following up on CDSS's webchat on open bands, we are creating a section on our website for open band resources.  We'd love to hear about the work you do and also link to your projects and resources.

Here's a link to the May Shop Talk: https://conta.cc/2HlZOXA
Shop Talk is free and you can sign up here to receive it: https://www.cdss.org/resources/how-to/organizers#shop-talk

With thanks!
Emily Addison
