Committees Seeking New Members

The following committees are currently seeking new members. Please check back regularly for updates.

Music Publications Committee

The Music Publications Committee is looking for members with some or all these qualities: comfortable communicating and responsive via email, familiarity with Finale/Sibelius, be interested in reviewing the acceptability of up 20 compositions on an annual basis, knowledge of copyright issues. Please contact Laura Ellis for more information.

Bulletin Committee

The Bulletin is one of the tangible benefits of membership in the GCNA, and it is published by the efforts of a small number of devoted volunteers. For the first time, the Bulletin editor is seeking new committee members via an open call. The editor is announcing a call for volunteers in order to promote excellent representation of our guild’s diverse members, including, but not limited to, race, color, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, and their perspectives in committee deliberations and decisions.

Any current member of the guild, at any membership level, is eligible to apply. To do so, members are required to initiate the process by emailing the editor. The applicant will then undergo a short copyediting test and afterwards converse with the editor to assess their fit within the committee. The publication of the Bulletin requires many varied skills; no one committee member is expected to cover them all. All committee members should have a reasonable grasp of carillon history, technology, and recent scholarship to fairly evaluate article submissions, and they all should have basic proficiency in copyediting and proofreading. Other skills we need include developmental editing; photo editing; publication layout (InDesign); score layout (Sibelius or Finale); foreign languages, especially French and Dutch; musical acoustics; music composition, theory, education, or history; mathematics; data construction and visualization; material cultures/material studies; architecture; gender studies; and race and ethnic studies.

If interested, please send your email with a description of your skills and interests to Kim Schafer. With the recent departure of two committee members, the editor desires to add more members as soon as possible; application by July 20th is strongly encouraged. Subsequent applicants will be considered on an annual or as-needed basis.
