The National Association of Brass Band Conductors (NABBC) was relaunched on 6 November 2020 with the new name 'Brass Band Conductors' Association (BBCA), complete with new branding. As well as bringing the organisation up-to-date this marks the launch of a new programme of events and offerings from the organisation.
The Association partnered with BBE in October 2019, which saw the two bodies coming together to develop educational opportunities for conductors. In addition to BBE providing administrative support, the arrangement means that all members of the BBCA now receive individual membership of BBE, which is included in the cost of their existing membership. This brings benefits such as a discount on personal insurance, a free DBS check and discounts at BBE events. Each new member will receive a complimentary keyring.
