IMC elects president.

Richard Letts, the executive director of the Music Council of Australia, has been elected president of the International Music Council (IMC) for the coming biennium. The election took place at IMC's recent assembly in Los Angeles, California.

The IMC general assembly also elected five new board members: Patricia Adkins Chiti (UK/Italy), Felipe de Leon (Philippines), Lupwishi Mbuyamba (Democratic Republic of Congo), Victor Sahab (Lebanon) and Beata Schanda (Hungary). The newly constituted board co-opted Lars Grunth (Denmark) as member of the 13-person body. Letts will be joined in the board's directorate by Einar Solbu (Norway) as executive vice-president, Margie Reese (USA) and Victor Sahab (Lebanon) as vice-presidents; and Lars Grunth (Denmark) as treasurer.

IMC is a membership organization created in 1949 by the Director General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), as the advisory body to the agency on musical matters. IMC is based at UNESCO's headquarters in Paris and functions as an independent, international, nongovernmental organization maintaining a formal associate relationship with UNESCO.

As president of the National Music Council, MTNA Executive Director Gary Ingle attended the meeting.
