Cara Duckworth, who exited the Recording Industry Assn. of America as senior VP-communications during her dozen-year run, has moved to the Assn. of American Publishers as VP-communications.
At the RIAA, Duckworth worked with policymakers and record label executives, guided media relations and social media and built support for the Music Modernization Act licensing bill that became law in 2018.
Earlier, she was director of communications for Motion Picture Assn. of America and press secretary for Oklahoma Republican Senator Don Nickles.
She will report to John McKay, senior VP-communications at the AAP's DC headquarters.
