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.
