IMPORTANT INFORMATION Concerning the General Assembly of IFCM

By Dr. Michael J. Anderson, IFCM President on the 15 May 2014

To the attention of the IFCM members:

General Assembly of IFCM
Seoul, South Korea
10 August 2014

Since our last General Assembly in Puerto Madryn, Argentina 2011, the Board has been working very hard to strengthen and vitalize the structure of IFCM. The intent was to make the operations side of the organization more robust so that we could better accomplish our mission: to exchange cultures worldwide through choral music. The Board looks forward to presenting their proposals for structural changes at the General Assembly in Seoul, South Korea, 10 August 2014. The full text of the proposed amendments will be posted on the IFCM website and emailed to all members in advance of the General Assembly.

These proposed amendments will be presented at the very beginning of the General Assembly for the IFCM members' approval. Procedures for elections will therefore follow the adoption of the new Statutes and Bylaws.


  1. All proposals for Board candidatures, including the intent to seek election as President or member of the Legal Committee, must be submitted in writing (email), together with a curriculum vitae and requested documentation, to IFCM by 1 June 2014.
  2. Furthermore, persons seeking election as President must submit (in writing) their proposed plans for the future of IFCM. Candidature proposals should be directed to Theodor Lind, Chair of the Legal Committee, c/o IFCM office (
  3. IFCM members wishing to add items to the agenda, or propose resolutions and motions, are requested to send the material (in writing) no later than 1 June 2014 to IFCM by email (

With best wishes,

Michael J Anderson
