Alison Wenham, chairman of AIM in the UK and vice president of IMPALA, was elected the first ever president of governing body WIN at a meeting attended by over 20 independent trade associations representing thousands of independent music companies from A2IM (USA) UK (AIM), Australia (AIR), Brazil (ABMI), France (UPFI), Germany (VUT), Spain (UFI), FONO (Norway), SOM (Sweden) ADISQ (Quebec), IMNZ (New Zealand), PIL (Israel) Pronofon (Mexico) AIRCO (South Africa), to New Zealand (IMNZ), Canada (CIRPA).

The principals were selected from candidates representing the multi-national regions defined by WIN. WIN policy dictated that each appointee came from a pre-determined geographic region in order to ensure truly trans-global representation for independents at the highest level of WIN.

The first term will be for two years, and it is anticipated that, thereafter, the principals will serve for one year.

The unanimous decision to launch WIN was taken at last year's Midem by over 100 independent sector leaders attending the first ever meeting of the global independent music industry, hosted by the IMPALA board.

The election of the first ever WIN presidency is intended to facilitate the delivery of an international WIN strategy to deal with the common commercial, political and cultural issues affecting all independents. The elected members will provide WIN with:

* A recognizable face and a global voice to stress its ongoing aims to grow the independents' market share.

* Improve visibility of independent music and artists.

* Promote key issues such as market access and cultural diversity in all national, regional and international policies.

* Opportunities for collective negotiation on behalf of Independents members world-wide.

Said Alison Wenham, "The opportunity to represent the issues and opportunities of the independent sector is both exciting and challenging. The independents can only benefit from the advocacy, which WIN will bring to their creative and business interests."

Peter Gordon, vice president of WIN, said, "We've seen what a modern, fresh organization can bring by the recent launch of A2IM in the USA, and this is a natural progression on a world-wide scale."
