The Touring Professionals Alliance exists to address the unique needs of the touring community by providing communication, advocacy, assistance in finding financial aid, and a map of resources for direct support. The Alliance was formed in the difficult times of the pandemic, and quickly set up partnerships within the hospitality industry to help feed the touring community who had lost income in the shutdown, raising the funds needed through the charitable arm of the Alliance.

For the future, the TPA sees the need for more communication, advocacy and support for the professionals who call the music industry home and looks to a role as a catalyst for these changes.
