One of BFE's founding members, David Hughes, has stepped down from the committee after his service as a co-opted member.

David was the BFE/ICTM UK Chairman from 1992-94 and has been a committee member in 1987-2000 and 2011-13. During these periods, he has been Secretary/Treasurer, Publicity Officer, ICTM Liaison and a local BFE conference organiser. He has also been on the British Journal of Ethnomusicology editorial board (1991-9) and has been involved with SEM (Council 2005-8), ICTM (Executive Board 1993-99, Conference Programme Committee 1993 and 1999). 

We are sorry to see David depart from the committee but expect to see him as usual at our conferences. The committee would like to extend our sincere thanks to David for his enormous ongoing contribution to the Forum for Ethnomusicology. 

We are delighted to welcome Hettie Malcomson (University of Southhampton) as an incoming co-opted committee member.
