The next WUSPBA AGM will be held October 21 -23, 2022.
Each year, WUSPBA holds an Annual General Meeting (AGM) in the fall. The location of the AGM rotates between the various branches of WUSPBA. At the AGM, the membership convene to discuss the business of the association, vote on new officers, and consider proposed changes to Bylaws and Contest Rules. The weekend of the AGM also serves as an opportunity for intensive meetings by the Executive Committee and Music Board. Regrading decisions for the following year are typically made during the weekend of the AGM.
Game Sponsors and Piping and Drumming Chair's Meeting
A meeting for Games Sponsors and/or Piping and Drumming Games Chairs will be held directly after the AGM (most likely in the afternoon). Further information will be announced at the AGM. The new Contest Manual will be discussed along with a question and answer discussion dealing with various issues that Games Sponsors are currently dealing with. So please plan to attend and come with your questions!!!
