6/4/2015 - 2015-16 MTSBOA Membership Fees and Registration Information
The reason for this communication is to give you some pertinent information that I hope will assist you in your budgetary planning regarding membership fees and dues, etc. I know this is a very busy time for some of you...but I also know you need this information for planning purposes.
The online registration link information will come out in early August to give you adequate time for preparation prior to our first meeting scheduled for Thursday evening, September 10th Location TBA (but hopefully at the Vanderbilt University Bandroom). I know you need adequate time to request checks, etc. prior to that meeting and the registration deadline!
We are very fortunate to have an active and professional organization in the MTSBOA (Middle Tennessee Band and Orchestra Association) and I want to strongly encourage your membership and ask you to do the same with the other Directors in your area! Please take the time to notify and encourage new Directors in your area!
Mark your calendar and plan to attend the first meeting on Thursday evening, September 10th, 2015 at 6:30-(free dinner- provided compliments of Thomas Tours) 7:30- Meeting-Location TBA (Hopefully, at the Vanderbilt University Bandroom!!!
