Nikki Sanz

Founder and CEO of Giggs - a social networking and job posting platform for the Touring Industry.

"It's an honor to be a member of CMA. It's incredible what the organization has done for Country Music, and I'm excited about their plans for future growth. My favorite parts of being a member, aside from voting privileges, are the professional development and networking opportunities. I love the MemberSIPS events, meetings, and webinars. I especially loved their webinar collaboration with Touring Career Workshop to discuss Touring & Balance on the Road. There's so much to take advantage of and I definitely recommend becoming a member!"

"CMA has played an important role in my Nashville journey. I've been able to make numerous life-long friendships and connections from starting as a CMA EDU member in college to now being a CMA member in my professional career. It is so rewarding being part of a professional organization that not only connects Country Music with fans all over the world, but also works endlessly to bring music into classrooms through the CMA Foundation."
