Media Association President LDS

LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, CANADA -- An historical event took place in Southern Alberta last Tuesday as new media artists and companies gathered together to form an association dedication to public education toward multimedia and to promotion of the local multimedia industry.

The Southern Alberta New Media Association had been informally meeting since April 2001 with a desire to form a catalyst for local economic reform and industry co-operation. Recognising the need to be organised officially, May's monthly meeting resulted in a steering committee being formed.

The steering committee of five, two of whom were Kim Siever and Katherine Archibald, both Latter-day Saints, met together to hash out all the details in putting together a new media association and setting out is goals, purposes, and mandate.

After two such meetings, the steering committee came before the rest of the group on the 12 of June to present their conclusions and efforts and to help facilitate the election of the executive board.

When four of the five steering committee members nominated to be president of the fledgling organisation turned down the nominations, the rest of the group turned to the remaining member and following a nomination, unanimously voted Siever as president.

Following the election of president, unanimous votes for the rest of the executive board all took place. Each position had only one nominee. Archibald had been voted in as treasurer.

In addition, David Bowie, a member of the Lethbridge Alberta Stake and a student in the Lethbridge Community College's Multimedia Production programme, was elected a member of the media and communications committee. Brian McCready, an entrepreneur and alumnus of the same programme was elected to the web committee. Committees will elect committee chairs at a later date.

McCready and Archibald also are members of the Lethbridge Alberta Stake, while Siever currently serves as secretary to the Lethbridge Alberta West Stake mission presidency.
