Welcome to the CIA - Message from the President

Dear CIA Members, Collegues and Friends,
It is with great pleasure and honor that I greet you as the new President of the Confédération Internationale des Accordéonistes (CIA).
I have been working in the Confederation many years now, first as a jury member of the Coupe Mondiale, then as a Voting Member, a Premiere Voting Member and Chairman of the Music Committee. In addition, the enthusiasm and passion that I have always had, led me to organize the Coupe Mondiale in Italy two times (Spoleto and Osimo) in just a few years.
I am sure the next few years will be full of events and initiatives, and I assure my utmost commitment to the success of all of our programs.
The Coupe Mondiale is already planned until 2021, and this allows us to work serenely with other ideas, which will take us into fields beyond specific accordion events, with the help of the network of the International Music Council.
I thank the Confederation for the confidence it has bestowed upon me as your President, and I will being to work immediately on our upcoming commitments.
Mirco Patarini - President
