I am currently up for election to one of six Directorships of the AMC. If those of you who are members could support me by filling out the ballot with a 1 next to my name, I would be greatly appreciative.
The AMC has a Board of Directors. There's like 14 people on this Board, and I want one of the seats, as the other seats are almost always filled by people who have already had their music education and no longer understand the role the AMC can play for young people.
Yeah. The other 9 candidates are all highly qualified, but there aren't any points of view by young people:
Gabriel Armstrong (Composer, High School Teacher, Wesley College)
Prof. Barry Conyngham (Composer, Former Principal and Dean, University of Wollongong)
Prof. Roger Dean (Jazz Composer, President, University of Canberra)
Dr. Jacques de Vos Malan (Composer and Producer)
Jon Drummond (Electronic Composer, Squelch Multimedia)
Dr. Stuart Greenbaum (Lecturer, University of Melbourne)
Prof. Helen Lancaster (Academic)
Dr. Raffaele Marcellino (Principal, Australian Institute of Music)
Andrew Quah (Third year Student, Sydney Conservatorium of Music)
Dr. Thomas Reiner (Lecturer, Monash University)
