Presidents and Vice Presidents
CISAC’s Presidency represents the voice of our international community of creators, bringing visibility and status to our efforts to protect the rights and promote the interests of creators across the globe.
In May 2020, our General Assembly elected singer-songwriter and co-founder of ABBA, Björn Ulvaeus, to serve as our President for 2020-2023. In 2020, the organisation elected its Vice Presidency, which enable more territories and a broad range of creative repertoires to be represented. The four Vice Presidents include: Yvonne Chaka Chaka, the internationally-acclaimed South African singer, songwriter and humanitarian, Arturo Márquez, the most prominent Mexican composer and director of the second half of the 20th century, Jia Zhang-ke, a world-renowned director, writer and producer from China, and Miquel Barceló, an internationally recognised visual artists from Spain.
Our President and Vice Presidents are working advocates for authors' rights and bring the voice of creators to the world stage.
