Update about the AMC restructure
As many AMC members, customers and supporters are already aware, the AMC is currently undergoing a significant restructuring, brought about by financial constraints in 2010. At the AMC's Extraordinary General Meeting at the end of February, the proposed revisions to the constitution were approved by an overwhelming majority of the ballots cast by AMC members. The changes result in a new relationship between the AMC and APRA, and provide for the AMC to continue delivering services to document and promote Australian music through its online facility, launched in 2009. This new relationship with APRA enables the AMC to continue to receive its core funding from the Music Board of the Australia Council, and deliver its services in a viable and sustainable way
While there are some changes to the operations of the AMC, including a reduction in staff and a hopefully temporary change to the content of the Resonate online magazine, most customers and AMC members will not be aware of any significant change. For the latest updates from the Board and the CEO John Davis and more detailed information about the restructuring, please check out the dedicated AMC update subpage.
