Annual General Meeting
As has been the case for many years, the CEC’s AGM is held as a hybrid event. Present at the in-person venue are CEC Board and Administration members, members of the CEC and persons interested in its activities. A video webcast is transmitted from the venue to allow the active participation of those who cannot attend in-person.
The meeting is open to anyone wishing to attend (not just current members), but only CEC Permanent/Full Members whose accounts are in good standing, Patron and Honorary Members may vote.
- Information on becoming a member can be found here.
- To upgrade your membership from Associate to Permanent, contact the CEC administration.
- The full text of the CEC By-laws and the Simplified Version of the By-laws are available on the CEC’s website.
Documentation of all AGMs is published in individual issues of eFlash!, the electronic newsletter for CEC members.

Since 2022, the CEC’s Annual General Meetings are “enhanced” with an artistic activity such as a performance or workshop that takes place in parallel to the proceedings. 1[1. In 2022, artists in Newcastle (UK), Richmond VA (US), Cape Town (ZA) and Lisbon (PT) gave a networked live coding performance.]
For the 2023 AGM, Jean-François Laporte (Productions Totem Contemporain) performs live in the Montréal hub with two novel approaches to creating sound with the Bol. No compressed air system is required here, as is the case for the original Bol. Laporte has designed and built an inventory of electroacoustic and acoustic musical instruments in the past 25 years. His instruments have been featured in winning works in JTTP 2022 and 2023.
