Jaunary Update

Hi, Folks:

It's been awhile since I've posted.  I hope everyone had a great holiday and are ready to go in 2011.  The NBBA is in the process of finalizing it's new By-Laws and getting a new community bank account set up.  A great thank you goes to Bill Eberts, whose help and advice have been invaluable to us.

BandBlast 2010 was a huge success with over 40 musicians attending.  We also held the AGM that weekend and elected a new Board of Directors.  It was my pleasure to be elected President for the next 2 years.

BandBlast 2011 will be held in Bathurst and is tentatively scheduled for the October 14 weekend.  It should be AWESOME!!!  Hope to see you there!

Take care,


Melissa Akerley Meadows
President, NBBA
