|MAS ASSOCIATION NAME CHANGE - GLIMA
Following a number of essential changes to the management and operation of the London International Mas Association (LICMA), the reviewed organisation is renamed GLIMA - the Greater London International Mas Association. The name change, which secured the overwhelming approval of the general membership at its recent general meeting, was formally launched at the London Notting Hill Carnival with Mas Band membersí floats depicting the GLIMA logo on their banners and flags produced within a joint purchasing arrangement.
The name change to GLIMA is part of a transformation process being pursued by the new Management Committee supported by the general membership that includes a new Vision - "Uniting Communities through Mas and Carnival Culture" and Mission Statement encompassing the following key elements:
"Each band has a different theme, this year ours takes into account the bi-centenary of the abolition of slavery. Our designs reflect this theme. They look at 'confinement versus freedom' using abstract shapes and colours."
