I was most impressed with the CNMN national forum, both in Calgary (2014) and Ottawa (2016), and greatly value the important role CNMN plays in building relationships and bringing together educators, composers, musicians and organizations in the new music community. I am particularly focused on supporting CNMN in building a long-term vision and strategic director. I enjoy working together with staff, board and members of CNMN building a strong national community and acting as an advocate for its initiatives.
