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
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.
