ICMPC: Advisory Board

The Advisory Board is a source of advice to successive organizers. It has no executive powers and no formal constitution. The Advisory Board has established a core membership which contains the organizers of all past conferences, together with the Presidents of the three Pan-National Societies, APSCOM, ESCOM, and SMPC.

The number of Advisory Board membership has grown considerably since 1989, and two modifications of the membership were made after the 1oth conference: one representative from each conference’s organizing committee for the Advisory Board and the establishment of the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee consists of the three most recent conference organizers and the Presidents of APSCOM, ESCOM, and SMPC. This six-member Executive Committee tackles various issues, through e-mails and meetings (when possible), and informs the rest of the Advisory Board. The most important actions that the Executive Committee takes are (1) the production and updating of guidelines for conference organizers, (2) the assessment of bids from potential future conference organizers in the light of these guidelines, and (3) launching and maintaining the ICMPC official website. The original ICMPC website was founded and had been maintained by Matthew Lavy for over 20 years. (The Advisory Board sincerely thanks Matthew for his long time dedication.)

In 2012, APSCOM, ESCOM, and SMPC donated funds to renew the ICMPC website; in 2013, the current website is launched. During the Business Meeting of ICMPC12 (2012), the Executive Committee proposed that this website be maintained by means of a small portion of the registration fee ($2 per participant) for future conferences, starting from ICMPC13, and this was approved by the participants. The Executive Committee is responsible for appointing an ICMPC Webmaster. The current webmaster is Jessica Slater, (webmaster<at>musicperception.org) to whom all correspondence about this site should be addressed.
