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.
After several years serving IAML as the IAML Historian Roger Flury has decided to step down. The IAML Board is therefore seeking to appoint a successor to Roger and would like to encourage members to consider applying for this position.
