National Association of Brass Band Conductors

The National Association of Brass Band Conductors (NABBC) and Brass Bands England (BBE) announced its new partnership in October 2019.  This sees the two bodies working together to develop educational opportunities for conductors across the country.  In addition to BBE providing administrative support for the NABBC, the arrangement means that all members of the NABBC 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, discount at BBE events and more.  Each new member will receive a complimentary tie or keyring.

The NABBC continues to host the annual Conductors Contest.   This was to be held on 13th June 2020 at Eccles Town Hall.  However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic this has had to be cancelled.  Entrants who have already submitted their video entries will receive feedback on their performances.

The NABBC and BBE will be hosting a series of 'Meet-ups over coffee' as an opportunity to network with other conductors and hear about the plans for taking the organisation forward.  These events will be open to all and admission will be free.  Details of dates and venues will be announced in due course.
