To ensure that information in respect of the exact date and time the delegation would be in a particular region, GHAMRO will forward bulk messages to members and therefore members are strongly advised to participate in this activity aimed at ensuring transparency and accountability.
GHAMRO wishes to use this opportunity to inform its members that it has received an amount of Nine hundred thousand, five hundred and fifty-three Ghana Cedis (GHC 900,553.00) as first tranche of the 2018 blank levy payments. In line with Section 29(3) of the Copyright legislative Instrument, LI 1962, 30% and 10% respectively would be apportioned out of the amount for administrative and welfare and the balance will be distributed to members in December, 2018.
