The USBands team is holding a series of Town Hall Meetings to kick-off the 2020 season. These Town Halls offer band directors an opportunity to share, in a collegial setting covering a wide variety of topics to best serve the USBands community. 

Thanks to Edison High School and Band Director Marc DeNicoula, for hosting our Central New Jersey USBands town hall meeting on January 13, 2020. The USBands staff, Jim Sheeley, Amanda Ehst and Eric Kitchenman, discussed with the band directors, band classification and the number of classes, the protocol for seeding at local and premier events and adjudication. 

Jim Sheeley, Director of USBands said, "Listening to our band directors provides the USBands team with invaluable insight. We hope Band Directors and staff will join us at the meeting most convenient for them as the Town Hall meetings continue through February.”

Future town hall dates are:

January 22, Ridgewood High School, NJ

January 27 Blackstone-Millville High School, MA

February 3, Brien McMahon High School, CT

Additional upcoming events are being scheduled for NY, PA, VA, and MD.
