The “Motown In The School” Package

History of the Motown Alumni Association The Motown Alumni Association started as an idea Billy Wilson directed to Martha Reeves of Martha and the Vandellas on March 1, 1995. She had just come home from the funeral of comrade Melvin Franklin (bass singer of the Temptations). She was distressed that the only time she gets to see her former work mates was when someone dies. Billy Wilson who was working with her on a community program she created in Detroit, asked her “Why don't you put together an alumni association”? Reeves said “Where did you come up with that cockamamie idea”? Then she said, “Why don't YOU create an alumni association”? Not knowing anything of the politics, and or nature of any ones issues, Billy Wilson decided to put the organization together. Wilson met Gladys Horton of the Motown group Marvelettes at an industry event, and stayed in communication with her via phone. Horton thought the Motown Alumni Association was a great idea, and allowed the MAA to use her name as an endorsement. Starting as a DBA based Internet only service, the Motown Alumni Association was created in 1995, but officially registered August 23, 1997. The MAA has obtained a measure of growth since its conception:  25,000 members worldwide  26-branched around the world  Owner of MAA News Magazine (online only)  Co-owner of DBMA Magazine (Detroit Black Music Awards) - Online Only  Owner of the Email service MAA NEWSLETTER -5,000,000 email subscribers (unique and extended)  Owner of Motown Alumni Association @ Facebook – Over 3,288 subscriber  Owner of MAA NEWS Magazine @ Facebook – 2,034 subscribers  Owner of the Motown Alumni Association (Personal site) – 5,201 subscribers  Partnered with the Vocal Group Hall Of Fame in Sharon, Pennsylvania to facilitate a VGHOF Annex in the city of Detroit.  The MAA is sitting on the Advisory Board of the R&B Hall Of Fame & Museum, proposing to bring their facility to Detroit.  Advisory Board member/ consultant proposing to bring the Michigan Music Hall Of Fame to Detroit.

The “Motown In The School” Package Optional Revenue Sources for DPS: 

Michigan Music Hall Of Fame – Kevin Hill (Curator)

Vocal Group Hall Of Fame – Bob Crosby (Curator)

R&B Hall Of Fame & Museum - Lamont Campbell (Curator)

These three organizations want to move their facility to Detroit. This revenue sharing venture has the potential of drawing hundreds of thousands of tourism dollars within the 5-year spectrum the Motown Alumni Association is proposing. The companies will run as a separate business venture, independently operated. DPS will negotiate a shared revenue plan with each operation. The Motown Alumni Association will administrate and manage the facilities on behalf of DPS to monitor the revenue sharing. DPS revenue potential will rely on tourism dollars. All promotion, marketing, and sale will rely on the organization and their method of financing their associations. DPS Hall Of Fame & DPS Walk OF Fame/ DPS Education & Research Center In the future one of the closed schools can be converted into a DPS Walk Of Fame honoring the legacy of everyone that went on to become scholars, politicians, and entertainment personalities that went to a Detroit Public School. The Motown Alumni Association will administrate, facilitate, and management the project on behalf of DPS. By adding a DPS Alumni Association then adding all alum to the register of the DPS-Hall of Fame, this will encourage pride and dignity amongst teachers of the past and present that have felt unappreciated by the DPS. The Lifevision 3D (without glasses) technology will participate in the program also.
