    Youth In Harmony Outreach Guidelines

    Many of our chapters, quartets and choruses are eager to engage music educators to get involved in a barbershop outreach program at their local schools. This is a good thing! That said, it's critical to the success of our outreach efforts that we always leave the music educator with the best possible impression of the barbershop art form and how it can enhance/augment the teacher's music education program.

    CHAPTER DUES CHANGES NOTICE

    Dear Chapter Presidents, Secretaries, and Treasurers,

    IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR DUES FOR 2018

    Changes in dues prices for chapters for 2018 must be updated in the BHS Member Center before NOVEMBER 1st
    (more than 60 days in advance as has always been our practice).
    If your chapter or district does not wish to change your dues prices, there is nothing else you need to do.
    As a general reminder, it is not necessary to contact Society Headquarters to change your dues (Chapter or District) prices.

    Here is a detailed message about the dues changes.

    We will be running invoices for January in November and the amounts must be in the system prior to running the invoices. Attempted changes with a start date within 60 days will not be accepted by the computer system.





    The MAD Marketing Team has created a Marketing Toolbox for Chapters & Quartets to use to promote your group.



    MAD Chorus Plateau Definitions

    Chorus plateau categories are based on the average percentile results
    from the two previous contests in which the chorus was entered.

    AAAA70% and above
    AAA60 - 69.9%
    AA55 - 59.9%
    A54.9% and below.

    First-time competitors will not be eligible for plateau awards,
    but their initial contest score can be used to place them in their next contest.
    A chorus that has not competed in any contest for more than four years
    will reenter the contest cycle as a Plateau A chorus.
