  • NAoAB Happy Hour: Reunions, Band Day, Homecoming

    December 6, 2023  6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

    Host:  Geof Sloan

    Was your Homecoming a big success?  Was your Band Day a massive flop?  Either way, the rest of us want to hear about it!  Please join us for an informal Band Day Happy Hour to talk about wins and losses for our Fall events.

    We intend for every band that is represented to briefly share highlights about their alumni band reunions, gamedays, and/or homecoming experiences from this past football season. This is a space for alumni bands to "talk shop" on what makes an alumni band day successful and work through shared challenges. 

    Email info@alumnibands.org to be added to presenter list with your presenters name, email and phone number and alumni band name by November 27th.

    Our association is here to lift each other up and learn from other experiences, both good and bad.  We look forward to hearing from you on your recent events!
