Catching up after a while with some excellent news. Our congratulations as ....
Naomi Pohl becomes the Musicians Union's first female Assistant General Secretary
Naomi Pohl has been appointed as MU Assistant General Secretary, Music Industry, and becomes the first female to join the Union’s team of senior officials in the Union’s history!
“There is also crucial work continuing in the field of music education, campaigning for equal provision across the UK and decent pay and conditions for instrumental teachers. Plus we continue to lobby for the Agent of Change principle to be introduced so that music venues aren't threatened by noise complaints from neighbouring properties that post-dated them. So plenty to be getting on with!
“I am especially pleased to be the first female AGS and I hope this is an indication of increasing diversity, not only within the MU, but across the music industry. It takes time, but it will happen.”
General Secretary Elect, Horace Trubridge, says: “This is a very welcome appointment. Naomi has worked for the MU in every area of the industry and is ideally suited for the role. I'm delighted that she will be joining the Secretariat at a time when the profession is facing so many challenges and I am confident that the new team is well placed to meet those challenges head on.”
