  • Webinar: Leaping to Solutions, Working through Shared Challenges

    February 29, 2024  6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

    Host: Amber Ryan
    Ole Miss Alumni Band

    The NAoAB would like to invite you to our next webinar event discussing our shared challenges and working toward solutions.

    During our band day happy hour in December, we asked alumni bands to share challenges from their previous band day events. This webinar is an opportunity for alumni bands to address those challenges with advice and suggestions from others who have been there, done that! We have selected a variety of common crises - be prepared to discuss how your alumni band has tackled topics like:

    • Communicating with your members and attendees
    • Being prepared for a variety of scenarios
    • Fundraising
    • Reunions vs Gameday
    • Recruiting alumni

    Who can attend our webinars?
    Any alumni from NAoAB Paid Member Organizations are eligible to attend these important webinars. Please forward this registration notice to your leaders and members of your alumni band.

    We believe our webinars provide value to our members. This invitation has been sent to both Paid Members of NAoAB and Prospective Organizations. Attendees of a prospective alumni band organization may attend one event before the alumni band organization should become a dues-paying Active Member.

    If your alumni band is not a paid member or prospective organization, you will not receive the webinar Zoom link.

  • International Tuba Day

    May 3, 2024

    Joel Day first established this holiday in 1979 while part of the Lower Merion High School Band. He and his fellow tuba player realized that their instruments simply failed to receive the respect and recognition they deserved. Little did he know that his efforts would result in a worldwide explosion of Tuba enthusiasm, with music being collected and performed that exalted the Tuba’s range and interest.
