Regional Connections Events

Regional Connections Events are ACB-sponsored events that will bring bands and musicians from a region together for a day of collaboration, education, performance and discussion. Each event will include participatory music reading sessions, roundtables and other education discussions, networking opportunities, and a few ACB Member Band performances. Event schedules will vary, perhaps including a concert on Friday evening to precede the one-day session on a Saturday. The goal is to have these events in different parts of the country.

Dates and locations are being determined for 2024.

Plans are under way for:

Omaha, Nebraska
April 26-27, 2024

Plano/Richardson, Texas
June 14-15, 2024

Charleston, South Carolina
October 2024 (date to be announced soon)

Regional Connections events will be held in different locations to serve our members in different parts of the country. There will not be a national ACB Convention in 2024.
