The NBCA President Dr Kevin Cameron has issued a statement highlighting the changes that occurred at the July 2010 conference in relation to regulations governing the Australian Band Championships.
The plenary paper that was issued in 2009 formed an extensive part of the discussion, debate and eventual resolutions which now form the basis of operation for regulations at future championships as outlined in the 2011 Yearbook.
There were other changes adopted at the conference in relation to playing time limits, solos and adjudicators which are highlighted in the President’s statement.
The Council is also pleased to announce that Yamaha Australia and the NBCA have signed a three year sponsorship agreement for the National Band Championships for 2011, 2012 & 2013.
The details of all of these matters can be studied in the President’s report and in referral to the documents Dr Cameron mentions.
