NBA-IU Call-Out Meetings

Then come to one of the National Band Association at Indiana University’s call out meetings on the following dates:

Sunday, September 16 at 5:00 PM, M340
Tuesday, September 18 at 7:00 PM, M242


Check out the Facebook Events for Sunday and Tuesday to RSVP!

At these call-out meetings you will get the opportunity to:

Ross and Dr. Gershman

Dr. Gershman works with Ross during last year’s NBA-IU event.

  1. Meet the executive board and its faculty adviser, Dr. Jeff Gershman (ONLY AT TUESDAY MEETING)
  2. Learn about the mission and vision of the organization
  3. Learn about the benefits of being a member and how to join
  4. Hear about what we are planning for this year!

We will be hosting two identical meetings just in case you are unavailable to make one of them.  You don’t want to miss these meetings – we’ll also be discussing ideas for the upcoming semester, including masterclass opportunities, fundraisers, service projects, and even some member-only events.

Already a member? Members should come to encourage new students to join as well as hear some of the ideas we have for the upcoming year.
