Dates of existence


Ffederasiwn Cerddoriaeth Amatur Cymru / The Welsh Amateur Music Federation was established around 1970. Membership of the Federation is open to all types of amateur music groups in Wales, subject to payment of the membership fees. It provides financial aid to its members, including guarantees against loss, financial assistance to purchase musical scores and instruments and to subsidise the travel costs of conductors and accompanists. It also loans scores to its members. The Federation was initially established as an autonomous body under the authority of the Welsh Arts Council but became totally independent in 1994. However, it continued to receive its funding by means of an annual grant from the Arts Council of Wales. The Federation is organised into several committees, each with responsibility for allocating financial aid to different categories of musical societies. Committee members are nominated by the constituent societies. The committees' decisions are implemented mainly by the liaison officer, a post held from around 1971 to 1995 by Keith Griffin, now the Federation's Director.
