Generation change in the board of the Music Information Association
In June 2018 the youngest general assembly of our organization “Music Information Association” took place. In this connection a generation change was decided at the association. In order to guarantee a smooth transition, a one-year transition phase is agreed for 2019. During this time both the technical and the organizational work will be accompanied by the old board and the work of the new management will be supported.
Doris Stadlmann was elected as the new President, replacing Helmut Schwaiger, who has been President for many years. However, he will continue to be in charge of the musical aspects of the database. Rudolf Josef Hödl was appointed as deputy, replacing Michael Hug. Michael Hug von Ruh Musik AG will continue to be the delivery partner for Switzerland.
Sigrid Stadler is the new secretary and her deputy will continue to be Juliane Pierer-Kliment. Also Johanna Heissl was confirmed as responsible for the finances of the association, her deputy is Günther Stadler. Harald Loidl of the tax office WTH-Seekirchen continues to act as the 1st auditor and Rudolf Schwaiger was appointed as the 2nd auditor.
Robbin D. Knapp as Webmaster and technical director of the data base will go in the next months into pension. His agenda will be taken over by a new partner, whom we will introduce in our next newsletter.
