The Utah Bandmasters Association will have its 5th annual conference February 2nd, 2017. This is conveniently placed one day before the UMEA conference. This year our conference will again be held at the Hilton Garden Inn next to the Dixie Center where the UMEA Conference is held the next day. This year we are excited to present some more exciting clinics featuring Dan Pham, Jeff Scott and Dan Smith. And those interested in starting the day with a bit of Golf can join us on the links in the afternoon.
New fee structure: We feel it is important that UBA members are members of the National Band Association (NBA). To encourage NBA membership we will be charging Non NBA Members $80 for the conference. This is 55 (membership) and 25 (conference fee). So you can see if members join NBA their conference fee remains at $25, just like last year. Retired members can join NBA for $25. Almost half our UBA membership already are members of NBA. You can join NBA at https://nationalbandassociation.org/join/
Collegiate NBA Membership is $15. There will be a $25 conference fee, which includes a Jimmy John’s dinner. Please register online or make checks out to “Utah Bandmasters Association”. All applications and checks should be sent to John Miller.
