As new members are welcomed, MusiQuE also bids farewell to departing ones. MusiQuE shows its gratitude to Martin Prchal, former chair of the Board, who has been engaged in the field of quality assurance for many decades and committed to the music field throughout his career. Martin’s commitment, vision and leadership enabled the very creation of MusiQuE, as well as its listing on EQAR. Musique also takes the opportunity to deeply thank Bernd Clausen (Board Member) and Rosa Welker (Student member) for their years of involvement in MusiQuE, and wishes them all the best for their upcoming projects!
