Rienk Janssen joins IBMA board

The professional membership of the International Bluegrass Music Association has elected three new members to the IBMA's board of directors, as well as reelecting one incumbent for a second term.

Eddie Adcock, already in the IBMA Hall of Honor as a member of the 'classic Country Gentlemen', is reelected to represent artists and composers.

Janet Davis, of the Janet Davis Music Company in Arkansas, represents merchandisers and luthiers.

Rienk Janssen of the Netherlands, editor of Strictly Country magazine, event producer, record distributor, member of the EBMA board of directors, and EWOB coordinator for the EBMA, represents international members.

Dwight Worden, president of the San Diego Bluegrass Society in
California, represents associations.

Each was elected to a three-year term which begins on 1 October 2007.

The board is IBMA's governing body which sets policy and determines long-range goals and priorities for the association. Members serve without compensation and bear the full expense of attending IBMA events and board meetings held at least twice each year.
