Dear CCC Friends and Members,

Welcome back to our first newsletter of the 2022–2023 season! The Board has been hard at work over the summer planning a great calendar of events for you. Due to the success of our webinar series over the last two years, we will be continuing to present monthly webinars. We’ve appreciated having the opportunity to connect with fellow industry members around the country and all over the world through our webinars and are looking forward to doing more of them in the upcoming year. Plus, we’ll be incorporating more in-person events in Los Angeles back onto the calendar this year, for more of the networking you enjoy doing at CCC events. Coming up in September is our first webinar of the year— “The Golden Age of Music: Sync-nificant Income for Catalog Placements,” moderated by board members Kristina Benson and Dana Childs, and presented in conjunction with the Guild of Music Supervisors.

Also returning is our Music Industry Toolbox event, held in conjunction with the AIMP at the Los Angeles College of Music in Pasadena. Tickets to the Music Industry Toolbox are free, so we’d love to see all of you there to check out the amazing lineup of vendors and programs we are preparing for you.

Stay tuned, as our full calendar of events for the year will be available at theccc.org soon.

Thanks for all of the support you give to the CCC, looking forward to a great year

Sincerely,
Renee Jeske
President, The California Copyright Conference 2022-2023

Cathy Merenda heads up the Visual + Media Rights department at Sony Music Publishing in Los Angeles where she liaises with film, television, and other media clients to execute strategic music publishing initiatives on a global basis.

Prior to Sony, Cathy ran the music publishing division of Twentieth Century Fox where she oversaw all aspects of music publishing, which included licensing, creative, copyright administration and royalties for Fox’s domestic film, television, syndication, news, sports, and cable divisions.

The daughter of an Army officer, Cathy traveled and moved with her family often including time in Hawaii, France, and England.  Attending 8 different schools, including 3 different high schools in Washington DC, Hawaii, and a boarding school outside of London, gave her a unique perspective on life and the ability to talk to anyone, anywhere at any time.

She attended Virginia Tech University and completed the UCLA Extension Music Business program.  Cathy began her career as a live and studio audio sound engineer working with artists such as Michael Penn, Gilby Clarke, Michael Damien and many others on tour and in LA clubs.  She then moved to the business side of entertainment as a Publishing/Finance Coordinator at All American Television/Scotti Brothers Records (James Brown, Weird Al Yankovic, Baywatch)­ before going to Twentieth Century Fox.

Cathy is past President of the National Board to the Association of Independent Music Publishers (AIMP), long standing member of California Copyright Conference (CCC), voting member of NARAS, and has served as a mentor with Operation Hope’s 5MK initiative, Northern Ireland’s Cinemagic, and a decade of mentoring with the Fox/Hamilton Music Mentoring Program.   She’s lectured on music for film & television for students at UCLA, Cal State Northridge, and Drexel University.

Enjoying many unpaid side hustles, Cathy spends her time doing photography, graphic and web design, cooking, baking, playing drums, taking care of her own domestic and other feral cats, as well as doing Pilates and hiking.

The CCC was and continues to be an integral part of Cathy’s career development and she is honored to be a featured member.
