Notably, in 2017, CSA expanded our partner network to launch new opportunities for songwriters in Central, Ohio. We worked with the The New Albany Classic to create a new songwriting opportunity for our members, sent a caravan of songwriters to perform alongside hit songwriters in the The Power of Music Festival (in Bentonville Arkansas), presented an official panel at SXSW (Austin), and received new support from Donatos and The Greater Columbus Arts Council to present our monthly showcases. CSA also inspired the launch of a new songwriting group, the Ozark Regional Songwriters Association, and was recognized as an example of music community during major conferences like SXSW, Canadian Music Week in Toronto, World Music Expo (WOMEX), Warsaw Music Export, and the Katowice Music Summit in Poland.
