A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT…
Wow! What an amazing week at the MMEA Convention! Dr. Mallory Thompson did a fine job with the band and also presented a very informative clinic for the convention attendees! Thanks to all who auditioned, prepared audition CD’s and adjudicated. The weather was a real challenge, however all seemed to work out well.
It is time to gear-up for the 2014 Summer Convention. You can make a room reservation by contacting The Resort At Port Arrowhead. Convention registration will be $55 for “early-bird” and $70 on-site. Convention dates are June 22-25, 2014. Check the website in the near future for registration information and convention programming.
There are a few books left of the “History of Missouri Bands”. Go to www.historyofmissouribands.com to purchase yours. Enter the discount code 314 to save enough to pay for shipping.
Update your membership profile so we can have your MMEA District. We are launching a “MEMBERS ONLY” social media side of the website so that you may post pertinent questions to other members. Also, don’t forget about the “classified section” on the homepage.
Applications for the “Young Band Directors Grant” for the Summer Convention and nominations for the MBA Hall of Fame can be found on the left side of the home page under “Forms”. Both deadlines have been moved up to February 24, 2014 from the posted date of March 1st.
See you all at the Lake!!
Linda Huck, President
Missouri Bandmasters Association
