Roula Abou Baker, IFCM Board member, elected IMC Vice-President

Last month, members of the International Music Council gathered online for the organisation’s 39th General Assembly during which they elected new leadership and adopted an ambitious work plan for the next two years. Alfons Karabuda (Sweden) was re-elected President. The IMC General Assembly also elected a new Executive Board composed of Roula Abou Baker (Lebanon), Charles Binam Bikoi (Cameroon), Dorothy Conaghan (Ireland), Paul Dujardin (Belgium), Ardavan Jafarian (Iran), Jacques Moreau (France), Charles Sanders (USA), Christine Thomassen (Norway), and Sheila Woodward (South Africa/USA).

Roula Abou Baker, IFCM Board member co-opted in 2020, was not only re-elected to the IMC Board but was also chosen to be one of the IMC Vice-Presidents. Here is what Roula has said about the appointment: Being a Vice-President in the IMC board is definitely a big honor but I see it also as a big responsibility. Focusing on joining more Arab members to the IMC and IFCM is on the top of my priorities. In the Arab region, we need to believe more in the importance of networking, to connect more with the world, so we can promote our music and develop it.Congratulations and thank you Roula!
