EUSPBA 2015 AGM Announced
3/30/2015
The EUSPBA Annual General Meeting will be held on November 14, 2015 at the Holiday Inn Inner Harbor, Baltimore MD. This location is convenient to most of our membership, and is situated In the heart of Baltimore's entertainment center.
This will not be 'your father's AGM'! The new Executive Committee has been diligently working towards creating a new and improved Annual General Meeting. Plans are to get much of the work done quickly and early, in order to present a more informative, conference type meeting that will get more information disseminated without becoming dull. The EC plans on a significant increase in attendance with the new format combined with several 'must-see' events. Contests, recitals, and workshops are all being considered. Please check here for details as they develop. more
Solo Tenor Drum Grade Changes
2/17/2015
In response to a 2014 AGM agenda item from the Northeast Branch and the concerns of several tenor & bass judges, the grades for solo tenor drumming have been changed. The unsanctioned lowest grade, novice, has been removed. The two remaining amateur grades, amateur I and amateur II have been renamed amateur and novice to better align with the solo tenor grades of other organizations. All competitors who were previously in amateur II and novice are now in novice. As novice is now a sanctioned grade, the restriction that competitors cannot be competing members of a band is no longer applicable. Musical requirements for each grade have not changed. We hope that this change will alleviate the concerns and confusion of the past.

You may email lindamhall@comcast.net with any questions.
