XI Chapter, Illinois

The International Bandmasters Fraternity

Our next annual meeting will be held on January 29th, 2021, at 11:30 a.m. at the Packard Plaza Hotel in Peoria, coinciding with the ILMEA convention. Current members will receive a mailing in mid October with information regarding nominations for new members and this year’s Hall of Fame inductee. The names of prospective new members should be held in strict confidence and returned to the Chapter President no later than December 1st, 2020. A second mailing in early December will contain the meeting agenda, the names of those nominated for new membership, dues notification, and a request to RSVP for the meeting.


Congratulations to our newest members:
