“Maribeth’s election to this prestigious council speaks to the respect she has earned among her professional colleagues in her discipline,” said New College of Florida Provost Charlene Callahan in announcing Clark’s election to the AMS. “It’s especially impressive that Maribeth has been able to maintain a presence in her academic and scholarly community while devoting so much effort to the administrative side of things at New College.  Clearly this brings positive visibility to the College on a national level.”
Established in 1934, the AMS was founded as a non-profit organization to advance research in the various fields of music as a branch of learning and scholarship. Since 1951, the AMS has been a constituent member of the American Council of Learned Societies and at present boasts some 3,300 individual members.  In addition to individual members, the society includes 1,200 member institutions representing forty nations.
As a member of the Council of the AMS, Clark joins a group of sixty elected members and thirty student representatives who advise the society’s board of directors on policy issues.
