Members who pay their Performance dues are able to check out gear from the CMI. Depending on the gear they want to borrow, they might need a sound engineer. Start by contacting a member of the CMI Exec Board and filling out the form linked below.
The CMI is always welcoming new members, though Key List access is limited, so make sure to submit your dues at the beginning of each semester!
MEMBERSHIP & DUES
The CMI welcomes applications from any and all current, non-graduated students. The Incubator's use of an application process both allows us to collect necessary information from members whilst ensuring that new members can be properly trained, informed and integrated into the club! You can join the CMI by simply signing up using the "Sign Up" above.
There are two levels of CMI membership:
This level includes 24hr service in the CMI room, including instruments (guitars, bass, keyboards) along with appropriate amplifiers. The closet across the hall is also accessible and can be used for personal storage of instruments (which we recommend labeling). This level of membership is perfect for people who are looking for a good communal practice space. The rate is $20 / semester.
This level includes everything in the previous level, along with the ability to borrow equipment for gigs, use of recording equipment, and access to the alternative practice space (the CD room). This level is targeted towards people who are aiming to perform either private or public shows. It will get your band on a list of payable bands for hire. The CMI also has a unified contract to rent equipment, secure payments, and hire a sound engineer (which includes advanced equipment) for these events. For more information, send me an email. The rate is $60 / year. It can be quite easy to make this money back if you accept potential paid gigs.
The Practice Room is available to any due paying CMI member. The room contains an electronic drum set, a digital keyboard, a whiteboard, a guitar amp, and a bass amp. NO EQUIPMENT IS TO BE REMOVED FROM THE PRACTICE ROOM. EVER.
The CMI collects dues for several reasons. The first reason is that it allows the club a contingency fund, as well as increased flexibility, in the event of the revocation of SGA Funding. Dues also help to provide a deterrent to theft and allow for a tiered system of resources that can be made available to Members. Instructions on how to pay your dues can be found in the Sign Up form.
