Administrative history

Following a series of organizational meetings initially arranged by founder Carolyn Lomax, the Association of Canadian Women Composers (ACWC) was officially established on November 2, 1980. The purpose of the organization was to promote the music of Canadian women composers and provide for them a support system. From November 1980 to May 1982, the ACWC was governed by an interim Board of Directors, consisting of a President, Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer and two other board members. In March 1981, the ACWC drafted a constitution which confirmed this governing structure, requiring that a new board of directors be elected by ACWC members at the first Annual General Meeting, which took place in May 1982. As many as 9 board members were to serve terms of two years. Subsequent constitutional and by-law changes eliminated the position of President and established other positions with varying responsibilities.

Custodial history

Scope and content

Series consists of material relating to Southam's involvement with the ACWC. Southam was a founding member, president (1981-1988), and later honourary president of the Association. The material in the series includes correspondence, contracts, administrative material, and other documents which convey the work Southam did with this Association.

The series also consists of a sub-series which contains a group of scores by Canadian women found together. It is possible they relate to the Association, or Ann's work with it, in some way.
