Redesigned ASCAP Website is Live

In recent years, www.ascap.com has grown to become the world's most visited professional music web site with more than 2.2 million page views and over 18 million hits every month. The new look of the site is marked by:

  • Greater graphic impact
  • A strong focus on members
  • Home page headlines that are brought to life with graphics
  • Up to date news and information
  • Navigation that is much more intuitive and oriented by user orientation

Commenting on the redesign, LoFrumento said, "As our members now use the ASCAP site for everything from title registration to the identification of collaborators, we saw opportunities for enhancing their experience. Because ASCAP is owned by its members, we are always looking for new ways to anticipate and satisfy their needs as music creators and publishers. This new and functional design reflects our very unique member-driven philosophy."

ASCAP's Credit Card Program

ASCAP credit card

Since the launch of the program last year, more than 1,000 ASCAP members have selected ASCAP's MBNA MasterCard credit card as a way to show their support and pride for the Society. Since members support the goals of ASCAP, there are several reasons to carry the ASCAP Platinum Plus or Preferred credit card.

Not only will members help support the Society, they will also carry a credit card with exceptional Customer service and benefits -- including a low introductory Annual Percentage Rate, no annual fee, around-the-clock fraud protection, and 24-hour Customer Satisfaction. Plus, by using the expanded MBNA Internet site, members can check their balance, review statements, and use a secure online electronic payment feature, 24 hours a day. They can also take advantage of special offers from more than 1,500 merchants and access many other services.

In addition, cardholders generate income for the ASCAP Foundation at no additional cost. That's because MBNA America, the card's issuing bank, provides funds to the ASCAP Foundation for each new account that is opened.

Every time the card is used to make a purchase, MBNA contributes additional money to help support the organization. The ASCAP MasterCard Credit Card Program is a great benefit to cardholders and to the organization.
