Mark Your Calendar - 2014 AGM

The MWPBA 2014 Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday November 1 at 1:00pm at the Scottish Home in North Riverside, IL.

We will be presenting the Band Champion Supreme Trophies as well as the new Solo Champion Supreme Traveling Trophies. We expect some exciting announcements and discussion for improvement in the coming years.

We plan to again have video streaming of the meeting for those people who are farther than 100 miles away.  We would still like to encourage everyone to attend in person if at all possible.

We hope that every band will be represented at the meeting.  Stay tuned for further details.
