Dear Andrew,

Thank you for the kind words and congratulations on being chosen as administrative chair.  Thanks to everyone on the Board and in the community at large for all you've done to advance MEI.

MEI has been a great joy to me -- I've had the pleasure to work with intelligent and caring colleagues and friends from many places in the world.  I'm proud to have played a role in the establishment and development of MEI.  I was always only its originator -- it was everyone else it attracted who really made it shine.

Best wishes,

Dear MEI Community,

Last night, 15 January, the MEI Board met for the first time in 2019. We welcomed Elsa De Luca as a new member to the board, and welcomed back Ichiro Fujinaga and Benjamin W. Bohl to serve another term. We are delighted to have such a diversity of backgrounds and experiences on our board, from music encoding pioneers, to technical experts, to world-class leaders in music scholarship of all eras. 

At the meeting we arrived at consensus for the following roles over the next year:

Administrative Chair: Andrew Hankinson
Technical Co-chairs: Johannes Kepper, Benjamin W. Bohl

We will be posting the minutes of the meeting to the website in the next few days.

In the coming year, we will be focusing our efforts on making MEI more accessible to wider audiences. This will include updating and improving our documentation, more tutorials and training materials, and updated information on our website. 

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Perry for his long-term service to the Board. For over 20 years Perry has worked tirelessly on MEI. Thank you, again, Perry -- we are truly humbled by your persistence and your accomplishments, and I hope we can continue to carry on your vision faithfully.

I look forward to our next year together,
