Andrew (and others),

The CEC's AGM was webcast for the first time this
year (although I believe there was a conference
call or something in the past), allowing members
from around the world to listen in. We also had a
chatroom setup to allow those distant members to
participate and even vote, but for technical
reasons the chatroom had to be canned this year.

The effect of this was a significant jump in the
number of members "present" at the meeting (those
distant members were also able to view documents
prepared for the AGM). And, as i understand it,
the Harvest Moon organisers decided on the
webcast of their events because the CEC's
administration was actively involved in
coordinating it (the webcast). So the CEC's
activities - in this case a fairly minor one,
admittedly, and one geared specifically towards
the active members of the CEC - were of an
indirect benefit to the international community.

More CEC activities here:

eContact!, webjournal in its 9th year of production

SONUS - online "jukebox" with over 1500
electroacoustic works from around the world

Jeu de temps / Times Play (now starting its 6th
year) - competition promoting young and emerging
(canadian) sound artists, with a CD compilation
spotlighting the top 8-11 works that is
distributed internationally to people and
institutions active in the production and support
of electroacoustics (CEC members, radio
programmes and stations, concert promoters and
various important cultural organizations).

The CEC remains open to suggestions for and
offers for involvement in future "activities", as
Kevin Austin has already explained.

Additionally, I should point out that full CEC
members may vote on the various issues and
proposals tabled at the CEC's AGMs. For more
details on becoming a CEC member, and thereby
helping support the CEC's many activities and
projects, please visit:

I hope this answers some of your questions/concerns.

people in other cities to witness or participate
in the goings-on, but also people who have
difficulties with moibility.
