Please be present and on time, with your new prospective SMBC member.
We will discuss additional plans for the up-coming 2012-13 NCCU Division of Bands music season, including improved public relations, advertisement and SMBC support services goals, during the 2012-13 Marching Band, Pep Band and Wind-Symphonic band season. The 2013 Band Blast and planning for the 2013 Awards Band Ball, (including financial, administrative and alumni volunteer services) will also be discussed.
It is very important that all members and interested parties be present for this meeting.
