Significant step in professionalisation

Another step forward for New Zealand and for the NZ Conductors Association.

The Association is achieving one of the central purposes, indeed a Holy Grail, for 'professional organisations' of any kind in the Anglo-Saxon liberal democracies: being entrusted with a gate-keeping role on behalf of the state.

The criteria are interesting, discernibly embracing various initial qualifications awarded by the Pető Institute over the years and the BA (Hons) from Wolverhampton. This fairly represents the present conductor workforce in God's Own Country. It will doubtless be possible to incorporate other conductor qualifications on a case-by-case basis.
