Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale (RILM), the non-profit organization that documents and disseminates music research worldwide, has kicked off its global search for a Deputy Executive Director. This is a newly created position offering significant opportunity for professional growth with the expectation that, as mutually understood benchmarks and measures are met, the Deputy will assume increasing responsibility, ultimately becoming qualified for promotion to Executive Director.
RILM Editor-in-Chief and Former IAML President, Barbara Dobbs Mackenzie attended a special forum held by the Taiwan Music Institute in celebration of World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. At this forum, Mackenzie spoke about the "collaborative content and cooperative blueprint of the RILM and IAML communities" and participated in the "launch meeting of the IAML-Taiwan prototype." A new group was established at the the forum that includes representatives from Taiwan music associations, and is described as an embryonic group that may lead to a Taiwan branch of IAML in the future.
