The Musicians in Business group is not limited to only Music Business Majors. All students who have an interest are encouraged to be actively involved in this student run organization. Over the past 108 years, NAMM (the National Association of Music Merchants) has proudly represented the industry that brings the gift of music into people's lives. NAMM is the not-for-profit trade association that unifies, leads and strengthens the $17 billion global musical instruments and products industry. NAMM's trade shows, activities and programs are designed to promote music making to people of all ages. What started in May of 1901 as a small, grassroots organization of 52 founding Members has since blossomed into an international association representing more than 9,000 retailers, manufacturers, distributors and reps of musical instruments and products from more than 85 countries.

Sigma Alpha Iota
Sigma Alpha Iota is a professional music fraternity for women. It functions in similar ways to a social sorority in that its participants have rush, rituals, and chapter meetings. However, it's different because the members have a bond through music, and most, if not all, of what they do concerns music. The Beta Gamma Chapter at Bradley participates in numerous recitals, fundraisers, and other campus activities throughout the year including some that are in conjunction with Phi Mu Alpha. For more information, see the Beta Gamma Chapter website.
