The 2018 WUSPBA AGM this past weekend was hard work for all involved. The Executive Committee met from 7 PM - 10 PM on Thursday, and the Executive Committee and Music Board met from 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM on Friday. The general session lasted from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM. Over 20 bylaws and changes to contest rules were reviewed, discussed, amended and considered. 31 different bands were represented, including all the Inter-Mountain Branch bands.
The 2019 AGM will be held in the Northern Branch, tentatively being planned for Sacramento, in early November. Look for more updates in the coming months. ...
The general session of the WUSPBA AGM starts at 08:00 Saturday Oct 27th. The intent is to finish the session before adjourning for lunch, but if there is too much to cover, we will have a lunch break, and reconvene until finished.
A social gathering is planned for Saturday evening at Slatterys Irish Pub, 5364 Greenwood Plaza Blvd, Greenwood Village, CO. Slattery's is located in the Landmark Center off Belleview and I-25. The gathering will start after 5:00 PM. ...
