The International Music Council celebrated its seventieth anniversary in Paris during its 38th General Assembly (27−28 September 2019), followed by the 6th World Forum on Music.
Deputy General Secretary at the British Musicians’ Union (BMU), Naomi Pohl was FIM’s candidate for election to the IMC’s Executive Board. She was one of the personalities elected, including President Alfons Karabuda, a Swedish composer, also President of the European Composer and Songwriter Alliance (ECSA).
In the upcoming period, IMC intends focusing on developing activities based on the five music rights –which constitute the main pillars of its mission as an NGO– while at the same time being closer to the concerns of its members.

On the day following her election, Naomi Pohl also took part on a panel on IMC’s 5th music right: “the right for all musical artists to obtain just recognition and fair remuneration for their work”, within the scope of the 6th World Forum on Music. Precise and underpinned by concrete examples, her testimony was particularly well received.
Specialist in copyright-related issues, Naomi Pohl has worked for the BMU since 2009. Since 2019, she has been its Deputy General Secretary. In particular, she is in charge of negotiating collective agreements.
