Squad Member Agreement

 The Rules:

No abusive speech or behavior towards Music Pro Club Members or the Squad. That’s a quick way to miss out on benefits and opportunities and will lead to suspension or ban from the Squad. itijik and partners will use their own discretion to make these decisions.

We don’t expect to have many big issues here. Our culture includes practicing to operate at a higher level, with a thicker skin than the new normal. This will serve yourself and everyone around you to keep things fun and productive. This is crucial especially with creative critique and opinions. There is definite emotion involved with any high level art form. But critique with good intentions is a benefit of having a Squad that you have an understanding with. Let’s make great music and continue to build our community up! The stronger the Squad, the more success for everyone involved.
